Did you know that June is Adopt-a-Cat Month? Consider yourself informed. I actually had no idea myself until I got an email from my friends at Scotties telling me about a wonderful event they sponsored earlier this month.
Back for their 4th year, Scotties Facial Tissues partnered with animal rescue organization up and down the east coast in an effort to get eligible cats and kittens into loving adoptive homes. Each organization – The Animal Protective Foundation (Albany, NY), Boston MSPCA (Boston, MA), and the Humane Society of Tampa Bay (Tampa, FL) all received $5,000 each to go towards the re-homing of cats. All cats and kittens adopted have been spayed, neutered, vaccinated, and screened for temperament. During the Adoption event, all fees associated with adopting select felines were waived at participating locations thanks to a generous donation from Scotties.
This initiative was first started by Scotties in 2014. It is part of an ongoing effort to increase the number cats and kittens going to good homes. From June 1st through the 7th during “Scotties Adoption Week” they are proud to say that in 2017 alone over 400 cats and kittens have gone into brand new loving forever homes. I think it’s safe to call the event a huge success!
Thanks to Scotties, Donald and Ted were able to go live and be loved on by their new families. Forever.
Just look at those faces!
If you’ve been considering adopting a cat – or any animal, please visit your local animal shelter. There are so many loving pets there who would love a chance to find their forever home. You may remember our dog Milo? Though he has already crossed the rainbow bridge, he was adopted. It felt so good to know that our family was able to give him a wonderful life in our home. Please, please, please consider adoption if you are thinking of getting a new family pet.
