One less homeless kitty!

A quick good news update. Snowflake, a 7-year old lady cat who we were sponsoring for adoption at a local shelter was adopted the day after Thanksgiving. Maybe she got some turkey leftovers. And hopefully she’ll have a wonderful holiday season while settling into her new forever home.

I hope the three other kitties we are sponsoring find their forever homes soon.

My participation in sponsoring kitties for adoption was prompted by a local businesswoman who is sponsoring all adoptions until the end of the year at the Front Street Animal Shelter in the city of Sacramento, CA. The news of this effort has gone nationwide and the response has been so overwhelming that the city shelter is transferring animals from surrounding municipal and non-profit shelters in order to keep up with demand. Due to the large volume of adoptions, additional businesses have joined the effort and have guaranteed that all adoption fees for animals at the city shelter will be covered. The article in the Miami Herald is actually very interesting. It states that animals who are adopted at a discounted or free event are no more likely to be returned than any other animal.

The shelter I sponsored the kitties at said they did not feel the adoption fee was a barrier to adoption, but if it prompts a potential adopter to give an older or “less adoptable” animal a second look, I’m all for using my donation in that manner.

    Paws up for Snowflake! I love that you are sponsoring kitties for adoption!

  9. That’s great news!

    Here at our city shelter there are planned times when older animals can be adopted for less than the regular fee. (Which is really quite reasonable to begin with.) And there are special discounts for folks over 50, which is very nice.
