June is National Adopt a Cat Month, and for good reason! We've seen a tremendous spike in feline intakes this month, mainly because we're in the thick of kitten season. And while we were prepared for an increase in kittens, it can still be daunting as we're often getting boxes of kittens brought to us on a weekly basis.
However, thanks to our foster program and dedicated staff members we have been able to find temporary homes for the kittens that find their way to us. Many litters of kittens require around the clock bottle feeding and we sincerely appreciate our foster families that have risen to the occasion.
As the litters of kittens like Khalon pictured below, grow old enough to be adopted they return to our shelter and it's then time for us to find them new homes. To help find homes for all these extra felines, we initiated an adoption promotion called, "Free Kitten Fridays." For the entire month of June, all kittens five months and under have their adoption fees waived!
We've seen such a success with this promotion so far, as it has increased the amount of potential adopters walking through our doors and the amount of cats and kittens walking out our doors with new families. We even had two consecutive weeks with 40 plus adoptions each.
