SEATTLE —Seattle Animal Shelter hosts a special kitten adoptathon on Sunday, Aug. 8, 2010, in hopes of finding loving homes for the many kittens currently in foster care. The event will be held at Whole Foods Market-Interbay, located at 2001 15th Ave. W., and will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Whole Foods Market is located just south of the Seattle Animal Shelter. Look for the bright yellow tents in front of the store. Many different breeds of kittens will be showcased.
From now through Aug. 14, you can adopt two cats or kittens for the discounted price of $224 including two-year Seattle pet licenses. The regular price would be more than $300. Cash or check is preferred.
“Because we have so many kittens in foster care, we are holding this special adoptathon, to reach out to people who are looking for special kitties to add to their families. We also want to promote companionship for cats. By adopting two, you ensure that your new kittens have playmates and companionship for the rest of their lives,” says Don Jordan, Seattle Animal Shelter director.
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)
The Seattle Animal Shelter has an active foster-care program to rehabilitate sick and immature dogs, cats and critters. Donations from the “Help the Animals Fund” pay for veterinary care for these animals.
The Seattle Animal Shelter is open Tuesday-Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. for licensing, and 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.
