Got Cats on Your Mind?

Animal Rescue League of Boston gets creative during Adopt-a-Cat Month to find homes for shelter cats

 Boston, MA – June is National Adopt a Cat Month, and the Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL)  and business partners have come together to help find homes for shelter cats.

“Every spring and summer, the ARL’s shelters in Boston, Brewster, and Dedham are flooded with new litters of kittens,” explains Mary Nee, president of the ARL. “At the same time, we have a steady stream of adult cats coming in who also need care and shelter.”

As a result, ARL staff have their work cut out for them when it comes to finding the cats in their care safe and loving homes as quickly as possible to help as many animals as they can.

“When you adopt, you give a cat a chance at a better life,” says Nee.

She also points to the veterinary and behavioral care every adoptable cats at the ARL also receives, including:

  • Spay/neuter services
  • Vaccinations
  • Feline leukemia test
  • Flea, tick and mite treatment
  • Microchip identification and registration

Through partnerships with businesses, the ARL hopes to boost cat adoptions during the busy month of June. Scotties Facial Tissue will make  a $5,000 donation to cover adoption fees on select adult cats June 22 through June 29 at all ARL shelters, and Cityside Subaru will provide funding for additional radio advertising to promote adoptions.

ClearChannel Outdoor, WBOS, WZLX, and the Sports Hub will also help promote cat adoptions.

Visit arlboston.org or the ARL’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages regularly during the month of June for additional details plus shelter locations, hours, and to learn more adopting a cat.
