Cat Days of Summer

The Adopt-A-Thon is just one part of Found Animals' Cat Days of Summer promotion.

Unbeknownst to many, the summer months are also known as "kitten season" at the animal shelter. Each year, animal care facilities are inundated with thousands of homeless kittens and cats.

Found Animals' Cat Days of Summer is a multifaceted initiative that aims to help 6,000 cats and kittens through adoption and spay/neuter programs. 

“We are so excited to launch an innovative and comprehensive summer campaign to benefit kittens and cats," said Aimee Gilbreath, Executive Director of Found Animals. 

"Not only are we committed to placing thousands of adoptable kittens, cats, and other companion animals in loving homes, and facilitating thousands of spay and neuter surgeries, but also to bring much needed awareness to the sad plight of homeless cats in our community.”

The Cat Days of Summer promotion includes the following events and specials:
