The Seattle Animal Shelter will host a cat adoptathon on Saturday, Dec. 13, 2014, at Mud Bay – Capitol Hill, located at 1514 Broadway, 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. The shelter’s “Home for the Holidays” promotion is also ongoing, which means many of the cats at Saturday’s adoption event will be available for only $15, plus applicable licensing fees.
“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,” said Don Jordan, Seattle Animal Shelter director.
Adoption prices range from $15 to $135 (plus applicable license fees) and include:
- Initial vaccinations
- Feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus testing
- Certificate for free health exam at local veterinarians
- Spay or neuter
Cats at least 6 months old qualify for the $15 pricing.
The Seattle Animal Shelter has a foster-care program to rehabilitate sick and immature dogs and cats. Donations from the city’s “Help the Animals Fund” pay for veterinary care for these animals while they are being fostered.
The Seattle Animal Shelter, located at 2061 15th Ave. W., is open Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. for adoptions and licensing. For more information, call 206-386-7387 (PETS), or view animals available for adoption online at www.seattleanimalshelter.org.
