Adopt a Feline Star During “Purr-mier” Month at the Cleveland APL

$25.00 Adult Cat Adoption Fee, Free for Seniors

May 30, 2008 – In celebration of Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, for the month of June, the APL will undergo a transformation into Purrywood and host homeless, feline celebrities who played starring roles in locally produced films such as Iron Cat, The Incredible Cat, Cats and the City, and Kingdom of the Many Kitties!

Beginning June 1, 2008, Purrywood’s feline celebrities, like Sarah JessiCat Parker and HarriCat Ford, will be available for immediate adoption. Adult cats, aged 5 months and older, will be adopted for $25.  The adoption fee includes initial vaccines, FeLV/FIV testing, treatment for parasites, spay or neuter surgery, a collar and tag, travel box, one month’s pet insurance, and a health exam from a local veterinarian.  Adoption fees for senior citizens over 60 years of age will be waived compliments of the Pets for the Elderly Foundation.

Purr-mier Month is part of the Cleveland APL’s ongoing and successful campaign to find a home for every adoptable animal. “We believe our homeless cats are stars and that adopting one will add years of joy, entertainment, and rewarding companionship to any household,” explains Ayse Casson, Director of Operations at the Cleveland APL, ”We invite our community to join our life-saving efforts by welcoming a shelter animal into their home … and have some fun with us while you’re at it!”
