National Cat Day shines light on fostering, adopting
SALISBURY, Md. – Friday is National Cat Day, a day all about celebrating our feline friends, but also about raising awareness of adopting and fostering.
This time of year especially, local shelters tell us they’re very busy with kittens and are in need of fosters.
Arynn Brucie with the Brandywine Valley SPCA says adopting and fostering cats and kittens are equally important, and National Cat Day can shed a light on all of the four legged friends who are looking for temporary and permanent homes.
“The shelter is a great stop for them, but not necessarily great long term, so for the older kitties that may not be adjusting well to the shelter, fostering is great for that, kittens that come in without a mom, or super young or a mom with kittens that may not have a soft nice place to land, fostering is really important for that,” she said.
And if you’ve been looking to bring a furry friend home, now is the perfect time to do so! The Brandywine Valley SPCA is running a special called “Pumpkin Spice, Pick Your Price.” That means you can name your own price for any adult cat, or a dog over one year old and over 40 pounds. That special runs until the end of the day on Sunday at all of the shelters campuses.
