Cat adoption is priceless this June!
June is national Adopt a Cat Month, and this year, Animal Friends wants to see no more catless homes! So, from June 1-30, Animal Friends is waiving their requested adoption donation for all cats aged 2 and up!
Cat adoptions include a feline companion, his or her neuter or spay surgery, a microchip and vaccines. As always, all adoptions will be screened to ensure loving, lifelong matches.
As Animal Friends knows all too well, times are tough for cats. Every spring, shelters are inundated with homeless cats and litters of abandoned kittens. As a result, wonderful, lovable feline companions like Ava, a 3-year-old Tortoiseshell who likes every person and pet she meets, and Lovebug, a 2-year-old white lap cat, wait and wait for a second chance.
Animal Friends knows that too many cats in our community are waiting for a lifeline. And, too few people know how important and how meaningful it is to adopt a shelter cat. At a place like Animal Friends, where a resident can live for as long as it takes to find the perfect home, this problem is all the more overwhelming.
So this June, in an effort to educate the community about the joys of adopting a shelter cat, and with a goal of finding qualified, permanent and loving homes for as many homeless cats as possible, Animal Friends putting their money where their message is: Cat adoption is truly priceless.
Animal Friends’ “Cat Adoption is Priceless” promotion is made possible in part by a generous donation from ARM & HAMMER® branded cat litter products. ARM & HAMMER is kicking-off the second consecutive year of their “Tag a Cat, Save a Life” initiative to increase awareness and educate cat owners about the importance of tagging cats. Launching to coincide with the start of Adopt a Cat Month, the pet tag initiative encourages cat owners to tag their cats to prevent them from becoming one of the millions of lost, unidentified cats that end up in shelters each year. According to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy, between 2.5 and 3.5 million cats will end up in shelters each year, and less than two percent of lost cats make it home. To help ensure lost cats return home safely, cat owners have the opportunity to obtain a free personalized pet ID tag via mail with the purchase of any two ARM & HAMMER® Cat Litters including the latest ARM & HAMMER® Double Duty Clumping Litter.

Animal Friends knows that they must place their current residents into permanent homes, so that even more cats can have a chance. Please consider cat adoption this June.
Animal Friends is located at 562 Camp Horne Road in Ohio township. For more information or to view adoptable cats, visit www.ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org.
