The Seattle Animal Shelter will host a cat adoptathon on Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013, at the Northgate Petco, 318 NE Northgate Way, Seattle. The event runs from noon to 3 p.m. and features numerous kittens and cats of different breeds. Cats available at this event have been living with foster parents, who are available at the event to share information about the personality and habits of the cats with potential adopters, helping to make a perfect match!
“With our monthly neighborhood adoptathons, we hope to continue to spread the word about the joys and value of adopting shelter pets and saving lives. If you have room in your home and your heart for an orphaned animal, this is a great opportunity to come and see some of the wonderful pets available from our foster-care parents,” says Don Jordan, Seattle Animal Shelter director.
Adoption prices range from $45 to $135 (plus applicable license fees) and include:
- Initial vaccinations
- Feline Leukemia testing
- Certificate for free health exam at local veterinarians
- Spay or neuter
The Seattle Animal Shelter has a foster-care program to care for dogs and cats in volunteers’ homes. Donations from the City’s “Help the Animals Fund” pay for all necessary supplies and veterinary care for these animals while they are being fostered.
The Seattle Animal Shelter is open Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. for adoptions, donations and licensing. It is located at 2061 – 15th Ave. W. The phone number is (206) 386-7387 (PETS). More information at http://www.seattleanimalshelter.org.
