Act on Adopt a Shelter Pet Day

Adopt a shelter pet -April 30 April 30th is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day and we at Furry Friends ask that you consider saving a life by adopting a pet – purr-eferably one (or two) of the fabulous felines WE shelter.

With that in mind, we wanted to remind you of the life-affirming roles kittens and cats play in our lives, and of our responsibility to pay it forward by saving the lives of those less fortunate. Millions of healthy, adoptable kittens and cats across North America are euthanized annually because there aren’t enough homes for them. It’s vital to remember that every animal adopted opens a space for another animal in need. And so, by choosing adoption as the ONLY option, you’re helping decrease the number of kittens and cats left homeless each year.

Being a small, hands-on rescue allows us to KNOW each of our furry friends – their personalities, what they like to eat and how they like to play. This vital information enables us to match the right animal with the right adopter, and ensure, to the best of our ability, that they all live happily and lovingly fur-ever.

Then, when they’re adopted, their new owners are given a packet containing their medical records and all the pertinent information they’ll need to properly care for their fur-ever felines. Most importantly, however, we are always here as a support system.
