“Cats on Tour” Adoption Campaign on WGAR


Cleveland APL Launches “Cats on Tour” Adoption Campaign on WGAR’s Mantel and Michelle Morning Show!

May 30, 2008 – It is that time of year again.  A time called “kitten season.”  As the temperature climbs, stray, unsterilized cats come out of winter hiding and reproduce litter after litter of homeless kittens, many of which end up at area shelters.  As a result, the Cleveland Animal Protective League is inundated with adult cats, litters of kittens, and orphaned kittens, but totally committed to continuing to find homes for every adoptable cat that comes in – and that means we need more adoptions to balance this lifesaving equation.

As part of the campaign to get more cats adopted, the Cleveland APL will launch a new, proactive, fun cat adoption promotion called “Cats on Tour” on May 30th.  Rover, the APL’s mobile adoption unit, will make its inaugural Cats on Tour appearance between 8 am and noon at the Clear Channel building at 6200 Oaktree Boulevard in Independence.  Michelle Maloney from WGAR’s Mantel and Michelle Morning Show will broadcast live from Rover during the 8 am hour and will be on hand to meet adopters between 9 am and noon.

Executive Director Sharon Harvey explained, “It’s like a Springsteen tour!  Rather than wait for cat adopters to come to us, we’re bringing some of our wonderful cats who need wonderful homes to a location near you!  And, stay tuned … we’re adding new locations every week!”

During the WGAR tour stop, Rover will be packed with adorable, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV tested cats who are just waiting to find their new best friend.  And, in celebration of Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, which runs through June, adult cat adoption fees at this tour stop will be $25 for all cats aged 5 months and up.  The $25 adoption fee will continue through June for every adult cat adopted from Rover, the APL shelter, and at the APL’s other offsite locations.
