According to the ASPCA, approximately 3.4 million cats enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of the cats entering shelters, about 40% are euthanized. These are alarming statistics, but you can help.
June is Adopt-a-Cat Month, which encourages and incentivizes people to adopt cats from their local shelters. During the month of June, participating animal shelters around the Valley will lower or waive cat adoption fees to help place as many feline companions as possible in loving forever homes.
All of us here at El Dorado Animal Hospital encourage pet adoption, which is why we proudly support Adopt-a-Cat Month and do whatever we can to educate pet owners and make sure adopted cats are happy and healthy. Read on for a look at some adoption tips and other ways you can help during the month of June.
Whether you’re adopting your very first cat or growing your feline family, your local shelter has cuddly newborns, mellow senior cats, and everything in between to choose from. Here are a few tips to help you find the right cat and to make sure you’re ready to provide a happy home.
