The Seattle Animal Shelter is hosting a cat adoptathon on Saturday, March 10, 2012, at the Greenwood Mud Bay store, 8532 First Ave. N.W. The event runs from noon to 3 p.m.
Shelter Director Don Jordan says the adoptathon is a great way to see some of the sweet cats available for adoption from foster care "parents."
Adoption prices range from $45 to $135 (plus applicable license fees) and include:
• Initial vaccinations
• Feline Leukemia testing
• Certificate for free health exam at local veterinarians
• Spay or neuter
• Microchip (About the size of a grain of rice, the microchip is injected under the cat’s skin, providing an identification number associated with that animal. Animal shelters can then “scan” a lost animal and retrieve its records from the microchip.)
The Seattle Animal Shelter is open Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. for adoptions and licensing. It is located at 2061 - 15th Ave. W. The phone number is (206)386-PETS(7387). Animals available for adoption can be viewed online at http://www.seattleanimalshelter.org
