Consider adding four paws to your family this weekend.

Tauranga SPCA's Valentines Second Chance For Love adoptathon is the perfect place to meet your next soulmate when it takes place at the society's Greerton branch today, from 10.30am to 2.30pm.

Whether it's dogs, older puppies, kittens, or cats that catch your eye, there will be a pet for every heart.

SPCA Tauranga operations manager Margaret Rawiri says there will be plenty of pets ready for cuddles and loving forever homes.

“The best way to choose a pet or to let your new pet choose you, is to spend some time with them. People are welcome to go into the cat adoption area and spend time getting to know the cats and kittens and find that perfect one.

“And we can organise for people to go into our playpen with the puppies if they think the right one is there for you.”

Whether you want to add four paws to your family in the way of a pooch or a feline, Margaret says their adoption pets are ready for devoted new families.

“Being kitten season we have lots of cats and kittens from eight weeks old that have all been vet-checked, de-sexed, microchipped, had their first vaccination and treated for fleas and worms – all for a discounted adoption fee for this day only!”

“We also have some puppies which are all exceptionally lovely and eagerly waiting to go to their new homes to enjoy the life they truly deserve.

All of the SPCA's puppies and dogs will have all been vet checked, de-sexed, microchipped, and have had their first vaccination, and been treated for fleas and worms prior to going to an approved home, says Margaret.

“And all of our adoptions are subject to meeting our normal adoption criteria.”

So if you want to meet your pawsatively perfect Valentine, make sure you head down to Tauranga SPCA, 43 Alach St, Greerton.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
