June is Adopt-a-Cat Month, the month that cat lovers wait for all year long and PAWS makes the celebration a little sweeter by offering a special incentive for potential cat adopters.
Starting on Monday, June 1, adoption fees for adult or senior cats on weekdays at PAWS in Lynnwood and PAWS Cat City in Seattle’s U-District are waived for potential guardians who meet the criteria for adoption. Adoption fees are paid for by funding from Animal Planet & ASPCA’s ‘Road to Puppy Bowl’ – a nation-wide program to encourage adoption.
“Adopt a Cat Month is a great time to consider adding a pet to your family,” said Kay Joubert, Director of Companion Animal Services at PAWS. “Cats enrich so many people’s lives and make such amazing companions, this incentive allows for even more people to give a loving cat the right home.”
PAWS finds homes for more than 2,200 cats in Puget Sound each year. Some of those have been cats and kittens who had nowhere else to turn. The PAWS Foster Program helps kittens and adult cats in need every year with a volunteer core who are trained to give felines a loving home where they can either grow or recuperate until they’re ready for adoption. The PAWS Foster Program is operated out of the Lynnwood shelter and welcomes new volunteers year-round.
PAWS Cat City in Seattle’s U-District places up to 60 percent of all cat adoptions for PAWS. The Cat City ‘cat colony’ concept was the first one introduced in the Seattle area. Today, PAWS Cat City is home to adoptable cats of all types and ages who socialize in free-roaming colonies.
