Pet adoption of the week: meet Calypso and her kittens

Pet adoption of the week: meet Calypso and her kittens

SPONSORED CONTENT — Calypso, a lovely domestic short hair Tortoiseshell cat, came in to the Grey Bruce Animal Shelter (GBAS) with six kittens around six months ago. The two boys became quite friendly and were adopted out, but the girls and Mom just don't seem happy as indoor cats. They are beautiful cats, but still very timid. Staff think they'd be much happier in a shop/barn situation where they can come and go a bit more on their own terms. The shelter is not in a rush to adopt them out, so will continue to work with them, but they are open to a nice warm situation where they can be themselves. The cats are healthy, spayed and up-to-date on shots. Calypso is around two-years-old and her three daughters are between six- and eight-months-old. They get along well with other cats and mostly stay out of the way of dogs.

Largely volunteer-based, the GBAS receives no financial assistance from any level of government and is 100% funded by adoption fees, private donations and fundraising events. The shelter is located at 457437 Concession Rd 8 S, Municipality of Meaford.

Although COVID-19 protocols have been relaxed, the GBAS is continuing to arrange animal visits by appointment. It allows volunteers/staff to spend enough time with prospective adopters as well as people surrendering animals. Face masks are optional.

For further information regarding surrenders, adoptions, donations and volunteering, please visit us at or Facebook at Friends of the Grey Bruce Animal Shelter or Instagram at Grey Bruce Animal Shelter.


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a donation in lieu of a subscription fee and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
