June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month and to celebrate, Humane Society Naples is waiving adoption fees for cats over four months old and reducing kitten adoption fees in half! Each adopter will automatically be entered to win a cat lovers basket including a Your Cat Backpack, $100 PetPeople gift card, toys, treats, Weruva goodies and more.
Here are some of the many reasons why people seeking a pet should adopt a cat:
YOU ARE SAVING A LIFE: For every cat we adopt out, a space opens for another cat in need. We transfer cats and dogs from other shelters each week in an effort to save as many animals as possible from being euthanized.
IT’S GOOD FOR YOU: Research shows that simply stroking a cat can release “feel good” endorphins in the brain. Plus, having a pet has been shown to lower blood pressure and the risk of heart disease.
NO HOUSEBREAKING REQUIRED: Cats are very clean animals who, in addition to bathing themselves often, are able to figure out the litter box naturally. If you are running late one evening there is no need to worry about rushing home to let them out or take them on a walk.
THEY ARE INDEPENDENT AND LOW MAINTENANCE: Because cats are naturally independent, they require little supervision once they pass the kitten stage. Set them up with a bowl of food, fresh water and a soft place to sleep and they are good to go for several hours! They make perfect companions for people who work long hours, live in apartments or simply prefer a mellow pet.
THEY ARE CUTE: Let’s face it, cats are cute and cuddly. Their soft, luxurious fur, striking eyes and nimble bodies make them irresistible. Anyone who has ever had a cat curl up on their chest and purr away knows there’s just nothing quite like it.
The adoption special will be available June 1st through June 30th. People who are interested in adopting a cat or kitten can visit the main shelter at 370 Airport-Pulling Rd N Tuesday through Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm. Our adoptables can be viewed in live time at hsnaples.org/adopt.
