We were adopted: June 3 – 9, 2019

Posted on Monday, June 10, 2019

Our Summer Lovin’ adoption special had adopters saying, “You’re the one that I want!” Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey, 138 pets were adopted last week!

Our homeless pets are now hopelessly devoted to their new guardians and we are immensely grateful to our generous donors and dedicated adoption counselors for making this promotion a lifesaving success.

Last week, 129 pets’ adoption fees were waived through our Summer Lovin’ adoption special. We spread the word using this adorable video!

Enormous thanks to our wonderful volunteer vocalists:
Trace Broyles, male lead
Ashley Moore, female lead
Fang, canine crooner
Eric, feline falsetto

Our staff background vocalists:
Barclay Finck, Steve Graeff, Bryony Grover, Timothy Joyner, Allana Maiden, Teresa McCartney, Gray Miller and Jennifer Walters

And our immense gratitude to Kerry Marple for mixing and recording our Summer Lovin’ audio. 

Help us continue our success and adopt a feline friend during Adopt a Cat Month. For the month of June, we are reducing all cat adoption fees by 25 percent for the entire month. Stop by our humane center to meet the fabulous felines in our care!
