As a thank you to cat enthusiasts, PAWS is waiving the fee for the adoptions of cats 10 years and older throughout the summer.

Pet-guardian curious Washingtonians responded with open arms to PAWS’ June challenge to consider cats as ideal companions. This week marks the conclusion of the American Humane Association’s Adopt-A-Cat Month initiative that PAWS joined in June. As a participant in the national campaign, PAWS offered adoption fee waivers on Thursdays for every cat over three years of age.

“Adopt-a-cat-month was a hit with animal lovers,” said Steph Renaud, PAWS’ Cat City Supervisor. “This month, we found happy new forever homes for 28 adult cats, many of them 10 years or older, from both our popular U-District’s Cat City and our Lynnwood Companion Animal Services Shelter.”

“There’s no doubt that when it comes to adoptable pets, dogs do get the majority of the attention.” Renaud said, “But we’ve seen firsthand how cats play a very important role in many families in the region.”
