This is the time of year when there are lots of kittens and they need to find homes for those who are currently in foster care. The event will be held at the shelter, located at 2061 15th Ave. W., and will run from 10 a.m. to noon. For the adoptathon, enter the shelter’s upper level on the 15th Avenue side. Many different breeds of kittens will be showcased.
From Sunday through September. 30, if you adopt two cats or kittens, all fees will be waived for the second cat, except for licensing. That means you can adopt two cats or kittens for a maximum of $129. Normally, the maximum cost of adopting two cats would be $214.
“Because we have so many kittens in foster care, we are holding this special adoptathon, to reach out to people who are looking for special kitties to add to their families. We also want to promote companionship for cats. By adopting two, you ensure that your new kittens have playmates and companionship for the rest of their lives,” says Don Jordan, Seattle Animal Shelter director.
Adoption includes initial vaccinations, deworming, feline Leukemia testing, certificate for free health exam at local veterinarians, spay or neuter, microchip and two-year Seattle Pet License. You can check out some cats on the kitty cam here.
