According to the American Humane Association, of the approximately 4 million cats and kittens brought to shelters, 71% are euthanized. That's 15% higher than the number of dogs. Early summer is a particularly hard time because it's mid-kitten season when every shelter is inundated with litters, sometime several in a single day. The thought of mothers with their kittens being euthanized for lack of space is so sad. Because of this, June has been dubbed Adopt-a-Cat Month to raise awareness and help more cats find their forever homes!
In celebration, Brother Wolf Animal Rescue will be holding a "Purrfect Together" special adoption weekend on June 26th and 27th from noon-4pm at PetSmart in Asheville. Foster moms will be on hand to help adopters find their perfect match, whether they are first time kitty owners or have other cats, dogs, or children. Because the best friend for a kitten is another, we're offering two at $150 (a $50 savings) over the two-day adoption event. In addition to helping these little guys find their homes we've reduced adoption fees to $50 for older cats, who tend to be overlooked during kitten season.
We have every age, color, and size of fabulous feline available, including a sweet 5 year old 'panther' named Zen, a stunning longhaired black and white boy named Salt & Pepper, a big orange Manx called Mr. Bojangles, and two of the prettiest kittens you've ever seen - tortoishell sisters Stingray and Reef. Stop by to meet some of our wonderful cats and kittens and pick up some sweets at the bake sale!
