Celebrate Father’s Day by adopting from the Cleveland Animal Protective League
Some of life’s best lessons come from the mentorship we receive from our fathers and other adults we encounter during our formative years, and the same is true for our animal friends. So, in response to the critical need to find homes for hundreds of cats and to celebrate Father’s Day and the importance of having an adult role model, this Father’s Day weekend the APL will offer reduced feline adoption fees. On Saturday, June 19th and Sunday, June 20th only, all adult cats aged 5 months and older may be adopted for only $20 and kittens under 5 months for $40. On top of that, the adoption fee for taking home a second adult “mentor” cat will be only $10. Regular adoption fees are $95 for kittens, $45 for adult cats, and $30 for senior cats.
“Our adult cats have a lot of wisdom to impart on their younger counterparts,” says Sharon Harvey, Executive Director of the Cleveland APL. “Why not take an adult cat home to mentor your new kitten and teach him or her how to succeed in a human home? Kittens will thrive under the watchful eye of a “father-“ or “mother-figure” who can show them how to find the only spot of sun in the house and claim it for themselves, how to “help” their human by sitting on the keyboard when they’re trying to work, and how to solicit attention all while remaining very cool and nonchalant. And, if you’d rather take home an adult cat with an adult buddy, that’s fine, too!”
All cats are spayed-neutered, tested for FeLV/FIV, have received age-appropriate vaccinations and treatment for worms and fleas, and come with a collar and an APL ID tag, a travel box, helpful speciesspecific animal care information, and a free initial veterinary exam.
