June is Adopt A Cat Month. “Kttten season” results in too many kittens and not enough homes. Hill’s® Science Diet® has a wonderful program Food, Love, & Shelter ® that is dedicated to helping pets. The goal of the Hill’s® Food, Shelter & Love Program is simple: to provide dogs and cats with superior nutrition that will make them healthier, happier and more adoptable as they wait for their forever home.
With all the cats and kittens in shelters, how do you choose the one that is right for you? If you already have a dog or a cat, look for a cat that the shelter thinks will be a good fit for your other pets. Think about your lifestyle: do you want an active kitten or an older cat? If you want a kitten, a lot of people recommend you adopt two. I know that having two dogs has minimized the destruction that a puppy wreaks because they play with each other, I assume cats are the same way. Plus it would just be adorable to have two kittens (but would you ever be able to do anything besides smile and say awwww!)
These two cuties are available from Greenville County, South Carolina where all cats and kittens are free to adopt all summer long!
It is important to start kittens out on the right step, including feeding them nutritionally sound food like Hill’s ® Science Diet® Kitten Healthy Development.
Boo, Duke and Amy Rose are just 3 of the cats up for adoption at Stevens – Swan Humane Society Inc. in Utica, New York.
I encourage everyone to consider adopting a cat with special needs or a senior cat who may be considered less adoptable. They may appreciate a second chance more than you can imagine and repay you with love and joy like no other.
If you are thinking about adding a cat to your family, use the Find a Shelter tool to find a Hill’s® Food, Shelter & Love® shelter partner in your area. Adopt a cat from a Hill’s Food, Shelter and Love partner and you’ll receive a a free bag of Science Diet® pet food or a $5 off coupon to further ensure a smooth and easy transition for pets to their new home. Hill’s Science Diet is available from your vet and pet specialty stores.
