Cuddle up with a catJune is National Adopt-a-Cat Month
Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation is celebrating National Adopt-a-Cat Month in June with many great cats and kittens available for adoption.
Those thinking about adding a cat or kitten to their family are urged to do it now and take advantage of promotions and prizes. Anyone who adopts a cat from Sarge’s, PetSmart or Haywood County Animal Shelter during the month of June will be eligible for a special drawing for cat goodies.
“Cats make wonderful companion pets and don’t have to be walked in the rain,” said Randi Pollack, chair of Sarge’s cat committee. “It’s nice to come home to a welcoming meow. Whether you are looking for the life of the party, mouse patrol, one to perch on your shoulder or a couch potato, there is a cat to fit your personality and lifestyle. So think about adopting a feline companion now.”
The drawing will be held July 1 and winners will notified to pick up their prizes at Sarge’s Adoption Center, 256 Industrial Park Dr., Waynesville.
• The grand prize is a 44” scratching post with platform, free first vet exam, six months of cat flea preventative, three nights free boarding, a self-heating cat mat, a plush cushion bed, a bag of Hills T/D dental health cat food, cat nail clippers, a cat brush, scoop, toys, treats and a cat clock.
• Second prize is six months cat flea preventative, with $10 off coupon for exam visit and treats, three nights free boarding, a self-heating cat mat, cat nail clippers, a brush, scratching pad, toys and treats.
• Third prize is six months cat flea preventative, two nights free boarding, $10 off coupon for exam visit and treats, a scratching pad, a self-heating cat mat, nail clippers, a brush, food place mat, toys, and treats.
The drawing will be held July 1 and winners will be notified via phone. In addition, there will be weekly drawings for surprise items.
To add to the celebration there is a special on black cats, which tend to be the last ones adopted, but are often the best pets. Adult black cats at Sarge’s and PetSmart will be specially priced during June at 50 percent off — just $25. All of Sarge’s cats they have been spayed or neutered and are current on vaccinations.
Finally for adopters who can’t decide between two of Sarge’s fabulous felines, during June they don’t have bother to choose, because people adopting two cats or kittens will get the second for half price. Most cats enjoy having company when their families are not home, and having another kitty to play with keeps them entertained.
Sarge’s is grateful to the sponsors that made the celebration possible — Animal Hospital of Waynesville, Balsam Animal Hospital, Canton Animal Hospital, Country Lane Animal Hospital, Creature Comforts, Junaluska Animal Hospital, Maple Tree Veterinary Hospital and Rahama Kennel and Cattery.
