Happy Adopt a Cat Month!
Each spring during “kitten season,” thousands of newborn kittens join the millions of cats already in shelters across the country. That means your local shelter has tons of cute, cuddly newborns, in addition to all the mellow, older cats and everything in between. And the shelter staff are ready to help you adopt your very first cat — or to bring home a friend for another beloved cat!
How are you celebrating with your feline friends? We’ve got a few ideas!
1. We’re kicking off the special month of June with a Top kitty photo contest. Post your cat’s most adorable or wacky photo on our Facebook page for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate good towards any service at our hospitals.
2. With kitten season in full swing, check with us or your local shelter to see if it needs extra kitty fosters or volunteers to help with the influx of felines.
3. But of course, the best way to celebrate Adopt a Cat Month is—you guessed it—adopting a cat!
Did you know we have pets available for adoption?
Many of our adoption cases are pets that have been found, surrendered or abandoned.
We accept donations for adoption pets from any source and we ask that each adopting family donate a minimum of $50.00, which goes towards the medical care of the adopted pet. We generally cover the initial expenses associated with providing pets the veterinary care that is needed to put them up for adoption. We strongly encourage adopting clients to make donations to our Veterinary Care Foundation fund too, in turn, to help other pets in need.
Meet Your Match
You may have noticed the purple, orange and green cage cards displayed on our cat’s cages. This is part of the new adoption program we’ve started called Meet Your Match. Developed by the ASPCA, it’s a matching program to help adopters find the traits most appealing to them in a cat and to help make our adoptions successful! It is the only method in existence today that evaluates an animal’s behavior and interests and matches them to an adopter’s preferences so that you take home a pet you can really click with.Some info courtesy of ASPCA
