The Twelve Pets of Christmas

POSTED BY Estelle W. IN

All I want for Christmas is a happy home! Save $50 off our adoption fees this December.

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the shelter,
The Twelve Pets of Christmas were in need of a helper.
For although these Twelve Pets have so much to offer,
These groups are ignored when it comes to adopters.

Group One is adult cats, aged nine months and up.
Why adopt only kittens? They’re cute, but grow up!
Fully grown cats need forever homes too,
Could one of these cats make its new home with you?

The next group of pets (and this one astounds):
Big, lovable dogs weighing forty-plus pounds.
A cuddly pooch you…

I know you’ve heard this all before but stars really are just like us.  Many stars are huge animal-lovers and they do a lot of work raising money, awareness and even getting right into the animal rescue world to get their hands dirty. Working in the animal realm, we see how one well-placed tweet, Facebook post, ad campaign or recommendation from a celebrity can be a major tipping point that helps organizations and their animals. So we are saying a special thank you to celebs who have given black cats a shout out!
Since it’s National Black Cat Day, let’s…

Cats are the unlucky bearers of a very unfortunate distinction in our local shelters: most likely to be euthanized. In the year ending June 2015, LA Animal Services reports that 6,862 cats were euthanized, and of those, 4,011 (or 58%) were unweaned kittens. As discouraging as these numbers are, they are improving year by year due to the hard work and dedication of shelter staff, rescues and volunteers. But more help is needed, so we are asking you to get involved through one of these 5 ways to help save kittens.

Adopt Kittens and Save Twice the Lives!

Did you know that cats are the number one euthanized pets in our animal shelters? According to ASPCA statistics, “of cats entering shelters, approximately 37% are adopted, 41% are euthanized, and less than 5% who come in as strays are returned to their owners.” At Adopt & Shop, we want to change those numbers, so for a limited time, we are offering two kittens for one adoption fee and 50% off adult cats.
Why Adopt Two Kittens?
When you adopt kittens two at a time, it benefits both of you because:

  • It will be easier for them to transition into

Update October 1st 2014: Stevie and Wonder were adopted last night and as the last pair of kittens to find homes on the final day of our #100KittyDays promotion, we could not be happier! These kittens are a fantastic representation of what can happen when everyone works together. We are so thankful to every member of the village who helped these two overcome the odds. Special thanks to their foster mom Lisa, Dr. Lukic who performed their surgeries and new adoptive mama Sumi!

On June 11th of this year, Adopt & Shop launched an adorable campaign on their Instagram called 100 Kitty Days. As many of you know, Kitten Season is a phenomenon that happens every spring when the weather starts to warm, and hundreds of thousands upon millions of cats give birth all over the world. Even though little kittens are really, really cute, Kitten Season is anything but.
Our Kitten Foster Project manager, Jen, did a great job of explaining some of the finer points of Kitten Season in a blog we posted last September called, “Kitten Season Purrs On.”
