Adoption Deals at SPCA: A Post-Kitten Kaboodle Report
June 21, 2011
Good news: More than 100 SPCA animals found new homes during a record-setting weekend at the SPCA.
Here's the report from SPCA spokeswoman Beth Brookhouser:
The SPCA for Monterey County’s third annual Kitten Caboodle was a huge success, with 110 animals going into new homes during the four day event.
From Thursday through Sunday, 39 cats, 57 kittens, 9 dogs, 3 puppies, 1 snake, and 1 canary were adopted, breaking previous SPCA adoption event records. During Kitten Caboodle 2010, the SPCA found homes for 87 pets.
The SPCA thanks everyone who supported this event and encourages people to think adoption first when looking for a new pet. There are still hundreds of adoptable pets looking for great new homes.
The SPCA for Monterey County is your nonprofit, independent, donor-supported humane society that has been serving the animals and people of Monterey County since 1905. The SPCA is not a chapter of any other agency and does not have a parent organization. They shelter homeless, neglected and abused pets and livestock, and provide humane education and countless other services to the community. They are the local agency you call to investigate animal cruelty, rescue and rehabilitate injured wildlife, and aid domestic animals in distress. Online at www.SPCAmc.org.>
And here's what we had to say about the event in advance of the weekend:
Ben Franklin famously cited beer as evidence that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
Ol' Benny got it right on quite a few frequencies, but he blew it on this one, or was at least incomplete: It's kittens that are exhibit 1A.
For the third annual Kitten Kaboodle, the SPCA is sharing the evidence at basement prices—$19.05—in honor of the year the nonprofit was founded.
When you calculate the price of adoption, which includes everything needed for a happy and healthy kitten—vaccines, health evaluations, pre-paid health insurance, and neutering—that's a bargain to make people purr.
It starts today in an hour and a half and runs through Sunday.
The deets: 11am-5pm Thursday and Friday; 11am-4pm Saturday and Sunday.
The SPCA is located at 1002 Highway 68, across from Laguna Seca. 373-2631, www.spcamc.com.>
