There is a reason why June is “Adopt a Cat Month” – the Seattle Animal Shelter is bulging at the seams with cute cats and adorable kittens ready for adoption. To entice prospective owners, adoption fees are waived for cats and reduced for kittens now through June 30, 2012. The offer is made possible by a grant from the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation.
With this special offer, for a cat (6 months or older) adopters pay only the cost of the license, if applicable. Seattle 2-year cat licenses are $27. Discounted adoption fees for kittens are $100 for one and $150 for two (plus licenses, if applicable), a savings of $30 for a single male kitten and $35 for a single female to as much as $120 for two female kittens. Regular adoption fees are available online at: http://www.seattle.gov/animalshelter/adoption-fees.htm.
The adoption package includes:
- Initial vaccinations
- Feline Leukemia testing
- Certificate for free health exam at local veterinarians
- Spay or neuter
- Two-year Seattle Pet License (if applicable)
“It is definitely kitten season here at the Seattle Animal Shelter,” says Don Jordan, Seattle Animal Shelter director. “We want to get our kittens, as well as adult cats, which are often overlooked this time of year, into loving new, forever homes.”
The Seattle Animal Shelter is open Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. for adoptions. It is located at 2061 – 15th Ave. W. The phone number is (206)386-PETS(7387). Animals available for adoption can be viewed online at http://www.seattleanimalshelter.org.
