MSPCA-Angell Waives Adult Cat Adoption Fees During Adoptathon

BOSTON, Methuen and Centerville, Mass. Aug. 26, 2015 – The MSPCA-Angell will waive its $150 adoption fee for adult cats on Saturday, Aug. 29 and Sunday, Aug. 30 during the fifth anniversary of the wildly popular “End of Summer” adoptathon, which has in the last five years seen over 800 cats go to loving, permanent homes.

The MSPCA’s three adoption centers in Boston, Methuen and Centerville are currently home to over 200 adult cats (aged one year and up), and the team is eager to see as many of them go home as possible.

“We’re hoping to adopt out over 200 cats during the adoptathon—taking us to 1,000 adoptions in the last five years,” said Jean Weber, director of animal protection, MSPCA-Angell.  “We could never achieve this success without the generous support of donors who’ve again made this adoptathon possible,” she added.

Letting Adult Cats Shine

Summertime is the season in which animal shelters are flooded with kittens, making it that much more challenging to find homes for adult cats.

Adult cats, however, make wonderful pets for individuals and families because most have already lived in a home—often with other pets—and their personalities and habits are fully established.  And because cats can live upwards of 20 years or more, one-year-old and older felines have many healthy and active years ahead of them.

All three of the MSPCA’s adoption centers—Jamaica Plain, Methuen and Centerville—will participate in the adoptathon.  The MSPCA has created an online destination with details on adoptable cats, hours and directions and other pertinent information for would-be adopters.

Funding for The End of Summer adoptathon has been provided by the Catvocate group, an all-volunteer assembly of cat enthusiasts who donate time and money to help find permanent homes for adult cats in the MSPCA’s care.
