Come meet the adoptable cats and adolescent kittens, age 9 months or older, rescued by West Columbia Gorge Humane Society. The “9 Lives for $9” promotion will be from Saturday, November 10, 2012 through Sunday, November 18, 2012 across the United States, supported by national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society. The 9 Lives for $9 adoption event also was funded in part by PetSmart Charities®.
“For nine days in November we are making it easy for people to meet our fabulous felines who are looking to find their forever home. For just $9 you can save a cat who could end up saving you,” said Diana Alderman, Board Member and Adoption Chair. “Every day 9,000 animals are killed in shelters simply because they do not have a home. Just by adopting a cat or two, everyone can be part of the nationwide movement to end the killing of adoptable, treatable animals.”
Alderman added, “When you perform the lifesaving act of adopting cats, you also improve your quality of life. You are bringing purring balls of love into your home that can help you lower your risk of a heart attack, boost your immune system, reduce your blood pressure, and a whole host of other health benefits, too. Plus if laughter is the best medicine, cats can provide a daily dose with their antics or just snuggle up and let you know everything’s going to be okay.”
This adoption event is part of Best Friends Animal Society’s national mission of No More Homeless Pets®, which aims to end the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. West Columbia Gorge Humane Society is a participating member of the No More Homeless Pets® Network, a program of Best Friends Animal Society, offering help and support to animal rescue groups that save lives in their communities.
