Happening now: Cat adopt-a-thon at SW Community Center

Those are two of the foster cats available for adoption now through 3 pm at Southwest Community Center (here’s a map). It’s happening in the community-room area on the lower level – go in through the back (south) entrance.

We got one of our cats at an event like this six years ago and she of course is a joy. The foster parents, like these two, are all volunteers, whose work helps Seattle Animal Shelter house more animals while permanent homes are sought:

Again, the adopt-a-thon’s happening till 3 pm. Parking is a little crunchy down there right now because of a football game at neighboring Southwest Athletic Complex, but it’s not impossible to find – remember there’s that big lot immediately to the south.

    OMG I want them all, but think maybe if I brought them all home my husband would leave me.

    Same here. Although our current two ex-shelter cats might leave too. Every time I said I was going down the hill to see the adoptable cats, they gave me the evil eye.

    So true. I was a foster mom for a young mother cat and her two baby boys….and ended up adopting all three. My foster career is over for now.

    What a great thing these volunteers are doing for our community!

    Seattle Animal Shelter does an amazing job with all of their animals. They have an excellent foster parent program and their rabbit adoption program has be a real success. If you can’t adopt, they can always use volunteers on site–like at adoption events; clean, used towels, help at fundraisers, dog walkers, etc.

    Their low cost spay/neuter clinic is self sufficient, therefore, gets no tax pay dollars. In order to be able to offer low or no cost spay/neuter to animals whose humans are on restricted income they depend on monetary donations which are tax deductible.

    Thanks for letting people know about the adoption event. Good news for the two cats pictured at the top (the lilac point and the tuxedo). Both were adopted as a result of the adoption event!

    If you missed this one, our next foster cat adoption event will be at the Meadowbrook Community Center in NE Seattle on Saturday, December 6th from noon until 3:00.
