It’s not too late to spread the word about Adopt a Shelter Cat month! Of course, there are so many animals in need of homes all year long, but this is month to pay special attention to what shelter cats have to offer.
Choosing to adopt a feline companion from a shelter has a lot of perks. The shelter staff can help match you with the perfect cat based on your own personality and lifestyle. Additionally, most shelter cats come spayed or neutered, dewormed, microchipped, and immunized! Opting to adopt an adult cat instead of buying a kitten is also a lower maintenance choice.
Bringing a new feline companion into your home can be a great boost for your health. Studies have shown that people with pets often have lower blood pressure, less stress, and an improved mood.
So, if you feel you are ready and able to care for a cat, please visit your local shelter! You’ll feel good knowing you saved a life.
