from the press release
Pet Adopt-a-thon Month is an initiative developed by North Shore Animal League America that brings together international pet shelter and rescue communities in order to raise awareness about the plight of homeless pets worldwide and to find them loving and permanent homes. The 2012 Pet Adopt-a-thon included nearly 3,000 participating animal shelter and rescue groups in 50 states (plus Puerto Rico and DC) and 10 countries, resulting in more than 30,000 shelter pets being placed in permanent homes. (Wow!)
The Hermitage Cat Shelter will kick off their June Adopt-a-thon month with a ”Black and Tan” special. For the first four weekends of the month, any black cat and tan tabby cat can be adopted together for only $40.
From June 24 through June 30, their promotion is “9 Lives for $9” special. Any lucky cat over 9 months of age can go home with a new family for only $9.
Finally, to find homes for the many playful and adorable kittens, the Hermitage is hosting a “Kitten Shower” June 29 and 30 in which the adoption fee for one kitten will be $15 and only $25 for two kittens.
Executive Director Joe Sprague says, “The staff at the Hermitage is excited about our June adoption specials and we look forward to assisting each adopter with finding the perfect match for their living situation. All cats and kittens are spayed or neutered and vaccinated to ensure optimum health.”
