Cat and kitten adoption special at Seattle Animal Shelter
Kittens discounted, cats free with a two-year license
The Seattle Animal Shelter is bulging at the seams with cute cats and adorable kittens ready for adoption. To entice prospective owners, adoption fees are waived for cats and reduced for kittens through September 9, 2012. The offer is made possible by a grant from the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation.
With this special offer, for a cat (6 months or older) adopters pay only the cost of the license, if applicable. Adoption fees for kittens are "two for the price of one" (plus licenses, if applicable), a savings of $135 for two female kittens. Regular adoption fees are available online at: http://www.seattle.gov/animalshelter/adoption-fees.htm. License fees are required for Seattle residents and are $27 per cat.
These discounts apply to cats and kittens in the shelter and in foster care. Foster care cats and kittens will be showcased at an event at Meadowbrook Community Center on September 8, noon-3 p.m.
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)
"It is definitely kitten season here at the Seattle Animal Shelter," says Don Jordan, Seattle Animal Shelter director. "We especially want to get our adult cats, which are often overlooked this time of year, into loving forever homes."
The Seattle Animal Shelter is open Wednesday through Sunday, 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.
