Kitty Palooza for crowd relief at Foothills Humane Society
More kittens have been coming in than are going out at the Foothills Humane Society. In a recent period of about three days, for example, almost 30 homeless kittens arrived in need of care and shelter.
“As a private, no-kill shelter, we do not euthanize to create space,” says Michele Brulé, Executive Director. “So, on Saturday July 20, we’re asking for potential adopters, and people who may have been delaying adoption, to act right away and come to our Kitty Palooza adoption event. We have a substantial investment in each kitten, but with the crowd that’s here now, we’re offering a dramatically low adoption price from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. As part of our Adopt with Assurance policy, every kitten comes with a spay or neuter, up-to-date vaccinations, implanted microchip, illnesses identified and treated, follow-up advice, and the guarantee that if you don’t loose your heart, your pet will be welcomed back.”
Susan Wallahora, Board President, further explains, “There will be at least 30 cool kittens, many colors, sizes, and ages, and all the hot dogs you can eat and lemonade to drink.”
Diane Balding, Board Member, notes that there will also be kitten care education programs, games for children, and a free raffle chance to win a 57-inch cat play tree.
Steve King, Board Secretary, the longest serving board member and a volunteer since 1996, concludes, “We have many volunteers and foster homes to help, but I know from experience that the best solution to crowding is adoption.”
