Many animals are born in the springtime, and as a result, the Washington Humane Society (WHS) takes in an abundance of new and young animals in need in our adoption centers. To help cats during the especially busy “kitten season,” we are honoring cats with special needs over St. Patrick’s Day weekend, March 16-18. We are inviting the community to meet adoptable cats and kittens with minor special physical or behavioral needs and help them find homes.
Some cats who will be highlighted are long-time or senior residents, like BangBang, our pet of the week, while others may be finishing a winter cold. Most just require a bit of extra care and attention, and our adoptions counselors are prepared to provide adopters with all the advice and information needed to properly care for these pets and give them the great homes they deserve.
WHS is asking our community to don green attire and meet cats in need at our festively decorated adoption centers at 7319 Georgia Avenue NW and 1201 New York Avenue NE. Special cat adoption fees will be $17 over the course of the weekend. Discount applies to designated cat adoption applications received during specified timeframe only.
As with all WHS adoptions, adopters will receive a free starter bag of Hill’s Science Diet Food; a goodie bag from Home Buddies DC; a free post-adoption exam at a participating veterinarian; and 30 free days of health insurance from Shelter Care. All animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on vaccines, de-wormer and flea/tick treatment.
We hope you will take this opportunity to make one special cat lucky this St. Patrick’s Day weekend. All of our animals thank you for your support!
