Every dog may have its day, but Saturday, July 9, was all about cats. In addition to finding new homes for 102 cats and kittens, the Dumb Friends League CatFest featured a purebred cat exhibition, a Meow Market with vendors selling cat-related merchandise, clicker-training demonstrations, and several free activities for children. Nearly 2,000 people attended the feline-festive event.
To help more felines find homes, the Dumb Friends League (Denver, Colorado 80231) will continue to offer $10 adoption fees for all cats, 5 months and older, through July 31. The special takes place at both shelter locations—the Quebec Street shelter in Denver and the Buddy Center in Castle Rock. Every cat adoption fee includes a spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccinations, a microchip ID implant, a free office visit with a participating veterinarian, and a bag of Hill’s Science Diet pet food.
“We’re thrilled that thousands of cat lovers joined us for CatFest and that so many took advantage of our heavily-reduced adoption fees for cats and kittens,” said Bob Rohde, Dumb Friends League president and CEO. “Cats make wonderful pets—they not only bring joy to your life and offer companionship, but they are affectionate, intelligent and receptive to training.”
The third annual CatFest was sponsored by Hill’s Science Diet. For more information on the Dumb Friends League and its $10 adoption special, visit the Dumb Friends League web site or call (303) 751-5772.
