Shelter urges cat adoptions throughout June
June 14, 2011
Cats rank as the No. 1 companion animal in the United States.
Though more than 80 million felines live in households across the country, many more remain still in shelters, waiting for a permanent home.
In June, Regional Animal Services of King County is joining the American Humane Association, Petfinder.com, and other animal organizations in the Puget Sound region and throughout the United States to promote Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month.
Pets adopted from the agency have been spayed or neutered, have received their initial vaccinations — including a rabies vaccination — and have had a health exam. Find available pets at the shelter, 21615 64th Ave. S., Kent, or at www.kingcounty.gov/pets.
