In June, approximately 550 cats were taken from an owner in Florida. They were cared for and vetted and are now available for adoption. This massive undertaking is being coordinated by a number of animal welfare groups including Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Program, HSUS, Alachua Co Animal Services and PetSmart Charities. Let’s help get eyeballs on this mass adoption event in Gainesville, FL because this is what we want to happen for rescued pets – to be cared for and adopted out to the public. More like this, please.
When: Friday through Sunday, August 25 – 27, 10am – 6pm
Where: Alachua Co Humane Society (with transportation provided to offsite adoption location)
Who: Any and all cat lovers who can get there
Bring: ID, cash, cat carrier
How much: $5 adoption fee per cat, 2 cats per household
What you get for your $5:
- Cats have been neutered, vax’d, FeLV/FIV tested, dewormed, de-flea’d and come with vet records.
- There will be people to help match adopters with cats so tell them what you are looking for in a feline friend.
- Whisker kisses for life.
