|Our Auntie Kathy, with two of her foster kitties|
We rarely stray from focusing on the cats of PAWS here at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life, but this post will be an exception. Those of you who have been following our blog for a while probably remember when our beloved and amazing Auntie Kathy lost her battle with cancer on September 2, 2012. You may also recall we mentioned that she was a passionate animal advocate, who along with her daughters (our cousins Mari and Alysa) fostered countless kittens over the years for the Seattle (WA) Animal Shelter.
There's a special event being held this month by the Seattle Animal Shelter in honor of Auntie Kathy. Now though December 22nd, the shelter is waiving all adoption fees for foster care animals. The free adoption package includes initial vaccinations, de-worming, FeLV testing, a certificate for a free health exam at a local vet, spaying/neutering, and microchipping. When considering the shelter's normal adoption fee for a kitty is $150, this is an amazing event, indeed. To read more about the promotion, and Auntie Kathy's legacy, check out the official news release issued by the Seattle Animal Shelter.
If you are in (or near to) the Seattle area, and are looking for a new best friend, please consider adopting a foster cat (or two, or three) from the Seattle Animal Shelter. We have no doubt that Auntie Kathy is smiling in Heaven at the possibility of so many kitties finding their very own happily-ever-afters.
The Seattle Animal Shelter, located at 2061 15th Ave. W., is open Wednesday through Sunday, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. The phone number is (206) 386-7387. Foster animals available for adoption can be viewed online at http://www.seattle.gov/animal-shelter/adopt.
