Special Adoption Campaign Finds Homes for Cats in
Diego Humane Society Kicks Off “Adopt-a-Cat Month” with
Adoption Promotions and Creative Cat Events
SAN DIEGO — June 05, 2012 — In honor of National “Adopt-a-Cat Month”, the San
Diego Humane Society and SPCA is launching a campaign during the month of June
to find homes for the cats and kittens in the shelter’s care. Under the fairytale
theme of “Furrytale Endings,” the San Diego Humane Society is waiving adoption
fees during the month of June for its fairest
felines – senior cats (ages 7+) and cats that have been in the shelter’s care
for more than 90 days.
“National Adopt-a-Cat Month falls right in the heart
of kitten season. Spring and Summer months are the high season for breeding, so
we see hundreds of neonatal kittens each year that need the around-the-clock
care provided by our Paws Kitten Nursery,” said Dr. Gary Weitzman, president
and CEO of the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA. “Every animal that’s adopted makes space for
another animal that’s in need of care, so our goal is to help all animals find
a home as quickly as possible.”
June Special Offers and Promotions:
- Waived adoption fees for senior cats (ages 7+)
and cats that have been in their care for more than 90 days. A ‘buddy’ cat
can also be adopted at no cost. For example, kitten adoption fees are
$100, and adopt a buddy kitten at no cost.
- Discounts on cat-related merchandise at the San
Diego Humane Society’s retail store, Muttique.
