Adopt a Cat day on Saturday

Kirtland Feed, 8281 Chardon Road, just east of Route 306 in Kirtland, will host “Adopt a Cat Day” on Saturday, June 5.

It will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event, featuring adoptable cats and kittens from the Happy Tails Cat Sanctuary, will include complimentary soft drinks and chips as well as some special sales of the store’s cat products. Kirtland Feed will donate a free bag of cat food with each adoption.

The free event will be co-sponsored by the cat sanctuary, which is filled to capacity and is striving to find more adoptive homes.

The adoption fee, usually ranging from $65 to $85, will be discounted to $50 to $70, and persons who adopt more than one cat or kitten will get a further discount.

The cats are up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, and tested for feline leukemia and FIV (feline AIDS).

All of the adoption money will go to the cat sanctuary.

Since 1982, cats of all ages have found refuge at the Chester Township-based, nonprofit, mostly cageless Happy Tails Cat Sanctuary.

The sanctuary has found adoptive homes for many cats, but some will spend their lives at Happy Tails because they are not traditionally adoptable because of age or disabilities.

For more information about Saturday’s event or directions to Kirtland Feed, call 440-256-1891 or 440-729-3768, or send an e-mail to
Inquiries and donations to help the cats at the sanctuary can also be mailed to: Happy Tails Cat Sanctuary, P.O. Box 581, Chester, OH 44026.
