Adopt a Shelter Cat Month

Adopt a Shelter Cat Month

Did you know that is June Adopt A Shelter Cat Month? While we always love to see kitties going to good homes, cats in shelters are often in dire need of help. In fact, adopting from a shelter is one of the best things you can do to help animals in need. You’ll read about some great reasons to adopt a shelter cat in this article from Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO vet, serving Louisville and the surrounding areas.

Save A Life

Shelters are overflowing with sweet, loving kitties that desperately need good homes. Many of these adorable cats are running out of time. By adopting from a shelter, you’re giving a furball a second chance at happiness. While adopting a single cat won’t change the world, it will definitely change that kitty’s world!

Helping Homeless Cats

Saving that one special kitty will not only benefit your new feline friend, it will also help other animals. The space that Fluffy leaves vacant won’t stay empty for long: it will soon be filled by another cute furball in need of a home. Also, the money you spend on adoption fees will help keep the shelter operating, allowing them to provide their furry charges with food, shelter, and medical care.

Make A Friend

Our feline friends are very astute. Cats often know when they’ve been rescued, and absolutely adore their saviors. Many people report that kitties they adopted from shelters are extremely lovable and affectionate.

Save Money

You can often save money by adopting from a shelter. For example, many shelters include the costs of basic veterinary services, such as vaccines and spay/neuter surgery, in their adoption fees. This alone can save you a pretty penny! You’ll also know that your money is going to support animals in need, instead of helping a puppy mill owner buy a fancy car.

Other Ways To Help

Even if you can’t adopt a kitty right now, you can still help shelter cats by donating money or supplies. You can also look into volunteering, or even fostering. Even spreading the word about a cute pet that needs a home can help. When it comes to helping our animal friends, every little bit counts!
