This Saturday, June 12, 2010 – we will be holding a VERY special adoptathon – adopting kittens and cats for only $25!!! All cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, current on vaccinations, tested negative for feline leukemia, FIV and heartworm and have been examined by a veterinarian. The drop in fees is in response to an overwhelming number of cats and kittens that were recently saved from the Cookeville Putnam County Animal Shelter. Director Jennifer Farley says “When the shelter calls, we respond – that’s all there is to it. We are here to support the shelter and save lives – and that’s what we’ll do when they call”. Jennifer received the call yesterday, June 7th in regarding to a massive intake of nearly 100 felines in 3 days. Working through the night, she and volunteer and avid cat lover Luann Allen came up with a plan to house cats in a variety of places – many unconventional, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Contributing to the latest rescue was the Humane Society of Putnam County Spay Neuter Clinic, who called Jennifer early today offering additional appointments for un-fixed kittens, making any spaces available in the kitten room.
Visit AARF at PETCO this Saturday to adopt your very own bundle of joy at a price you can afford! These felines DESPERATELY need homes – please spread the word!
In addition, AARF is seeking the following in regard to assistance with these felines:
