BOSTON, Methuen and Centerville, Mass. Oct. 30, 2013 – The MSPCA-Angell announced today it is reprising its wildly popular “Fall in Love” adult cat adoptathon by offering fee-waved adoptions on Saturday, Nov. 2 and Sunday, Nov. 3. The MSPCA’s three adoption centers in Boston, Methuen and Centerville will take part in the adoptathon.
By coupling generous support from donors with creative and smartly timed adoption campaigns such as “Fall in Love,” the MSPCA is breaking new ground in its efforts to place even more animals into new homes. The fall adoptathon is the latest in a series of aggressive, integrated campaigns and strategies to sharply reduce the homeless pet population across the Commonwealth.
In the last two years alone the MSPCA has spayed or neutered nearly 22,000 animals, preventing the birth of millions of unwanted dogs, cats and other animals in Massachusetts.
The MSPCA’s three adoption centers currently house hundreds of adult cats, all of whom can be adopted with no fee this weekend only. MSPCA staffers hope to find loving permanent homes for all of these cats—as well as the hundreds of homeless dogs, rabbits, birds and small animals in its care who will benefit from the increased foot traffic sparked by these kinds of campaigns.
The MSPCA-Angell is a national and international leader in animal protection and veterinary medicine and provides direct hands-on care for thousands of animals each year. Founded in 1868, it is the second-oldest humane society in the United States. Services include animal protection and adoption, advocacy, humane education, law enforcement, and world-class veterinary care. The MSPCA-Angell is a private, non-profit organization. It does not receive any government funding nor is it funded or operated by any national humane organization. The MSPCA-Angell relies solely on the support and contributions of individuals who care about animals. Please visit www.mspca.org.
