WITH ADOPTION FEE’S WAIVED FOR ADULT CATS EVERY THURSDAY IN JUNE, IT’S A PURR-FECT TIME TO FIND THAT NEW FELINE FAMILY MEMBER.

PAWS* (The Progressive Animal Welfare Society) joins the American Humane Association to inspire Washingtonians to consider cats as an ideal companion.

PAWS has announced that they are offering a unique special on cat adoptions in June; Adoption fees will be WAIVED for every cat over the age of three every Thursday in June.

We adopted a cat at Cat City back in December and it has been such a fun journey watching her settle into our family. Cats have such unique qualities to offer us as well as they keep themselves engaged working themselves up about squirrels, crows, and unfortunate bugs that end up buzzing around the window sills. Furthermore, cats are great insurance against any rodent problems in your basement! Stop into to Cat City and you won’t  be able to help but fall head-over-heels in love with a bundle of cuddly cuteness!

“Our adult cats offer so much love and companionship to cat lovers looking to either start their fur-families or expand them.” said Kay Joubert, Director of Companion Animal Services at PAWS. “Cats are the most popular pet in Seattle, which is why we opened Cat City in Seattle to complement our companion animal operations in Lynnwood.” Joubert said this special adoption program in June would help adult cats find their “forever homes.”

The University District has it’s own adoption location at Cat City (5200 Roosevelt Way NE).  There is also The Companion Animal Service shelter in Lynnwood at 15305 44th Avenue West. Hours and more information can be found online at www.paws.org.

*PAWS is a champion for animals–rehabilitating injured and orphaned wildlife, sheltering and adopting homeless cats and dogs, and educating people to make a better world for animals and people.
