June="Priceless Purrsdays"

I am so excited to share that  every Thursday in June at the Leon County Humane Society, all adoption fees for adult cats are waived. Every playful feline is spayed or neutered and have their vaccinations.. Since C & I already have a full household (in our opinion) with Henry (white- on right) and Beau (left) we won't be able to participate. But this is an amazing opportunity for anyone living in Tallahassee to add a furry member to their family!

OFFICIAL RELEASE:
Adult Cats are Fee-Free Every Thursday in June!

As part of Adopt-A-Cat Month, the Leon County Humane Society has declared Thursdays in June to be "Priceless Purrsdays." Each Thursday the LCHS office at 413 Timberlane Road will be open extended hours from 10 am to 6 pm and all cats 1 year and older will have $0 adoption fees (all other adoption requirements still apply).

As part of Adopt-A-Cat Month, the Leon County Humane Society has declared Thursdays in June to be "Priceless Purrsdays." Each Thursday the LCHS office at 413 Timberlane Road will be open extended hours from 10 am to 6 pm and all cats 1 year and older will have $0 adoption fees (all other adoption requirements still apply). LCHS has joined shelters and rescue organizations through the country in a special Fee-Waived Adoption Campaign, sponsored by the ASPCA® and Fresh Step® Cat Litter.
LCHS has many wonderful adult cats ready for adoption. They are friendly, playful and loving. Plus, they are already spayed or neutered and have had all of their vaccinations and veterinary care. The only thing they lack are permanent homes of their own. What better way to celebrate these "priceless" companions than by holding this special promotion that encourages adoptions?

Holding special fee-waived adoption promotions is a relatively new idea, but it saves lives. Furthermore, ASPCA research recently published in the Journal of Applied Animal Welfare Science found that waiving fees for adult cats boosts adoptions without diminishing the value adopters place on their cats.
In Tallahassee alone, over 4,500 homeless cats entered shelters and rescues last year. With your help, we can find loving homes for our feline friends. LCHS will eliminate the $80 adoption fee we typically charge for cats 1 year and older every Thursday during the month of June. All other adoption policies and thorough match-making procedures will remain in place.

So join us this Thursday, June 2 for our very first "Priceless Purrsday"! We will be staying open until 6pm each Thursday in June to make it more convenient for you to meet your new feline friend.

If there isn't room at home for a fabulous feline, there is another way to help. From June 1 through July 31, 2011, simply "Like" Fresh Step's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/freshstep. With that simple action, the makers of Fresh Step litter will donate $1 (up to $100,000) to the ASPCA to help expand programs like this and get more cats into loving homes
