DEARBORN — During the month of June, cats and kittens are more prevalent in the Dearborn Animal Shelter than in other months, a trend consistent with other sheltering organizations around the country. This pattern has spawned National Cat Adoption month, a time when particular focus is given to encourage potential adopters to consider opening their hearts to homeless felines.
The Dearborn Animal Shelter announced a cat adoption special, dubbed “Save 9 Lives”, going on throughout the month of June for cats 4 months and older. Adopters can choose their adoption fee starting as low as $19 and stepped up in increments of $10 at a time through $99. The sliding scale details how the money is used at each level to help the both the adopted cat and some of their “friends”. It shows which services can be provided for multiple cats with the
added donation above the initial $19. All adoption fees include sterilization, age appropriate vaccinations, microchip and a lifetime of joy.
Currently, the Dearborn Animal Shelter has plenty of cats in its care with many meows throughout the building and in the Shelter’s network of foster homes. Elaine Greene, Executive Director, Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter describes “This is a peak month historically for cats and kittens in the Shelter and we are hoping to invite interested adopters to consider choosing one of our cats with this Save 9 Lives special in June”. “The offer is for cats 4 months and older because they tend to be less readily adopted than their kitten counterparts.” Greene continued. “They all deserve a chance to find their new forever home.”
Interested adopters for cats or dogs can view all of the available Shelter animals online as well as complete an adoption application. The Dearborn Animal Shelter is located at 2661 Greenfield Road, Dearborn, and is operated by the Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
