Gingerbread is one of the newest arrivals at the CARES cat shelter in Langley.

Record adoptions in 2017 for Langley cat shelter

There are still new cats arriving weekly at the CARES shelter.

Langley’s CARES Cat Shelter is ending the year with a record number of adoptions, but with many cats who still need homes.

One of the cats singled out in this year’s Christmas message is Gingerbread, who arrived at the shelter this month with her friend Missy.

Both belonged to an owner who has since passed away.

“Adoptions remain our top priority, as well as providing good care and a loving environment for all of the animals that rely on us,” wrote CARES president Carol Briner.

Most recently, 23 cats found new homes during Adoption Week in November.

Overall, more than 450 cats have been adopted from CARES this year, said Briner.
