Meow! Kitten Season has arrived AND it's a feline frenzy! June encourages us to remember our feline friends when considering a new pet as it is "National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month". Each Spring and Summer, HSSM becomes inundated with cats and kittens in need of forever homes. These feline fur babies come with as many personalities as they do colors and coats. They curl into our hearts and will just as quickly remind us they decide who they love. Whether they were born in the shelter, surrendered or abandoned, an average of 2,800 cats enter our shelter doors every year.
When considering the adoption of a furbaby, take your time. Each shelter animal will touch your heart, so be sure to find a life-long love.Consider your lifestyle. Will you have time for an active kitten or will an adult cat be more to your pace? Do other members of your fur family need to be considered? If so, be sure to introduce them to be sure their personalities mesh. When you bring your new family member home, have a space ready for him to decompress and adjust to his new abode. Don’t be surprised if he hides at first. This is normal cat behavior.
This June, HSSM will be offering $5 adult cat & $15 kitten adoptions each Friday of the month! All adoption fees include the animals' spay/neuter surgeries, microchip, up-to-date vaccinations, 30 days of pet insurance, 1 discounted vet service, a starter bag of food, and an engraved ID tag. Standard adoption policies and procedures still apply.
Check out one of our adorable kittens at the shelter, Bermuda who is full of energy and life just waiting to meet her forever family. Stop by the shelter Tuesday-Saturday and ask for her by name!
