Find That Purrfect Friend For Your Own Perfect Adoption Fee
Pets

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) - The Washington Humane Society (WHS) is giving potential adopters a chance to name their own adoption fee for all cats age 6 months or older from Wednesday, August 1, through Sunday, August 5.

With an extremely high volume of cats during this summer "kitten season," when huge numbers of kittens arrive weekly, WHS is calling on the community to help save lives by adopting a cat (or even two cats) in need, and as an incentive, you can choose what you'd like to pay to bring your feline(s) home.

Hundreds of cats are seeking their forever homes, including those in the attached photos: Gidget, Sicily, Simba, Sylvester and Tweetie (those two are so bonded, they're hoping to be adopted together)

Adoption counselors will answer questions, and all the usual matchmaking procedures will remain in effect to ensure the animals find the best homes possible, and that their adoptive owners will be happy and satisfied.

Seephotos and bios of adoptable animals on the WHS website, www.washhumane.org, and meet the cats in person at WHS adoption centers: 7319 Georgia Avenue NW or 1201 New York Avenue NE.

All WHS pets go home spayed/neutered; current on vaccines, de-wormer, and flea/tick treatment; and microchipped, which is a value of several hundred dollars.

And there are great bonuses too: adopters also 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. Cat adoptions regularly cost $85; finding your dream kitty at a discount is really a purrfect deal.
