“As the weather warms up, cats begin to breed and area animal shelters are filled to capacity with homeless cats and kittens,” says Sean Hawkins, Executive Director for Second Chance Center for Animals. “We decided to put extra effort into finding every homeless cat and kitten in our shelter a loving home by lowering our adoption prices during the entire month of June, which is National Adopt-a-Cat month,” says Hawkins.

“We think cats are fantastic every day,” says Amy Kerr, Nestle Purina Plant Manager in Flagstaff, Arizona. “During the Cat-a-palooza partnership with Second Chance Center for Animals, we not only want as many cats and kittens as possible to find new homes by being adopted, we want them to start off on the right foot nutritionally to keep them healthy. We hope the community takes advantage of the very generous gift of free cat food with every adoption.”

On average, Second Chance Center for Animals invests $200 to $300 in every adoptable cat and kitten. “We hope the community will take advantage of the ‘Cat-a-palooza’ special and welcome a new feline family member into their homes in June,” Hawkins added.
