Though we generally discourage randomly giving animals as presents here on Pet Show, we absolutely encourage those of you who’ve been thinknig about getting a cat to take advantage of Catmas!
The Central Oklahoma Humane Society (OK Humane) is excited to announce the “12 Days of Catmas” – a cat adoption event beginning on December 11th and running through December 24th. In an effort to adopt out 200 cats during the 12-day period, OK Humane is offering cat adoption fees of only $12.00. Normal adoption fees are $70.00!
The OK Humane adoption fee includes the following procedures: spay/neuter, de-worming, vaccinations, flea/tick treatment, microchip and snap test. In addition to the adoption discount, all kitty retail at the OK Humane Adoption Center will be 10% off.
“We have 200 cats in our adoption program currently and we are determined to get them all into a home before the holidays! What could be a better holiday gift than a new companion?” said OK Humane Director Christy Counts.
The Catmas special is one of many future efforts to offer deeply discounted adoption fees in an effort to save more lives. OK Humane and the Oklahoma City Animal Welfare Division have teamed up to form a collective goal of 3,000 more adoptions in 2010.
“The Oklahoma City Animal Welfare Division will benefit greatly if the 12 Days of Catmas is successful. If OK Humane does indeed adopt out 200 animals during the special then we will be able to send another 200 animals to the OK Humane Adoption Program!” said Catherine English, the Division Manager of OKC Animal Welfare.
Potential adopters can take advantage of the special at the OK Humane Adoption Center located at 7500 North Western Avenue. The Adoption Center will be open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
