June is Adopt A Shelter Cat Month! While any month is a great time to adopt a shelter cat, we are always happy to shed some light on this great cause. Shelters are often overflowing at this time of year, since so many kittens reach adoptable ages in early summer. Here, a Carolina Forest, SC vet lists some reasons to consider adopting a shelter kitty.
Everyone Deserves a Second Chance
There are far too many kitties in shelters, desperately in need of loving homes. In fact, over 3.4 million cats enter shelters annually! Many are former pets, who have either been lost, abandoned, or surrendered. Others are strays, while some have been rescued from bad situations. One thing all of these furballs have in common: they need love!
Promote Good Animal Welfare
When you adopt from a shelter, you’re also indirectly helping other animals. Fluffy’s adoption fees will help the shelter provide other homeless pets with food and care. Plus, you’ll be freeing up some much-needed room!
Going to a shelter is often much cheaper than getting a kitty from a breeder or pet store. You may also save money on veterinary care, since shelter pets are generally already fixed and current on their vaccines and parasite control.
Make a Purrfect Friend
It’s always interesting to learn how people met their feline friends. Sometimes all it takes is one look at a cute furry face, or one cute meow. Fluffy may win your heart the moment you see her! You may also have to choose from a room full of adorable furballs. Take some time deciding, and listen to your heart.
Save a Life
Helping our animals friends is very important to us, and it’s definitely something that you can feel great about. You may find that saving Fluffy is a very rewarding experience. It’s a truly wonderful feeling to realize that you’ve saved an animal’s life!
Cats Are Awesome
Fluffy has always has a special place in our hearts and on our laps. Kitties somehow manage to make us smile, even on the worst days. Also, you’ll be repaid for your kindness with purrs, cuddles, live entertainment, and unconditional love. What more could you ask for?
