Adopt, Don't Shop! Caturday Special: Kittens Galore!

I started volunteering at the Seekonk Animal Shelter back in December. I've always wanted to save the kitties - one kitty at a time. But since my husband put the kay-bash on my kitty-saving efforts after two kitties, I must devise a different plan for saving them!

This is a new series I plan on continuing as long as there are cats available for adoption at the Seekonk Shelter. Although called Caturday, it will also include dogs available for adoption too.

Owning a pet is an expensive endeavor. They're like children - you need to feed them, toilet them, take them to the doctor's, buy them toys.... it all adds up. So why on earth would someone want to dole out more money by buying a pet when you can get great pets through adoption!?

I'd like to think that it's plain common sense not to leave your pet in the car while you run into the grocery store or the post office or the bar or anywhere else for that matter... you wouldn't leave your infant in the car, would you? Despite what I think is common sense, I frequently see pets, especially dogs, left in unattended cars even during these exceptionally hot days. 

The temperature in a car rises much quicker than the temperature outside. It takes mere minutes for the temperature to become fatal for an animal. In the state  of Massachusetts, causing an animal to be subjected to any sort of unnecessary cruelty or suffering can be punishable by up to one year of imprisonment or a fine of $1000. If you're planning to run errands, leave your pet at home!

And this week's Caturday is dedicated to our many kittens!

In the last several weeks, the Seekonk Animal Shelter has taken in at least two separate litters of kittens. These little ones are just now turning about 8 weeks old and are ready to be adopted! We have a mixture of males and females. The gingers above (orange) are all males. The very patriotic looking sweetpea on the bottom is a female as is the other tiger/striped kitty.

Each will come dewormed, with initial booster vaccines and microchipped. If they are not spayed or neutered prior to leaving the shelter, you will be required to have this done by a given deadline as part of your adoption contract. How can you resist these tiny, fuzzy faces?!

If you're interested in adopting any animal from the Seekonk Animal Shelter, here is the application for adoption.
