Hot Deals, Extended Hours and More for “Cat Friday” at the ASPCA!

Tuesday, November 20, 2012 - 1:00pm

Planning to observe Black Friday with a shop-a-thon in NYC? Don’t forget to stop by the ASPCA, where we’re celebrating in our own way: with Cat Friday. You could just meet the cat or kitten of your dreams…and we think that’s a much sweeter deal than anything you’ll find on retail.

On Friday, November 25, the ASPCA Adoption Center is opening its doors for the extended hours of 10:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. and offering very special discounts on cat adoption fees that you won’t want to miss.

For Cat Friday only, felines one year and older have waived fees, and kittens four months to one year have an adoption fee of only $50! (It's normally $125.)

With each of these special adoptions, adopters will receive additional goodies including a free cat collar and ID tag and a cardboard carrier.

All ASPCA pets are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped! Plus, adopters will receive a certificate for a free vet visit within two weeks of adoption at ASPCA Animal Hospital.

For those intent on holiday shopping, Gift-A-Pet certificates, good for one future cat or kitten adoption, will also be available for purchase.

See you Friday!

Why not make a slightly better deal by offering adoption of Black Cats at $40, and others at $50... on Black Friday?

I believe black cats are not adopted as quickly as other color cats.


Could you set up a Sponsorship Program for shelter pets for the elderly and veterans in nursing homes, VA hospitals, or retirement communities? It could be partly or wholly funded by people who cannot keep a pet in their home or apartment, or who already own a pet and who want to help shelter pets, and help veterans and seniors to own a pet? The ASPCA could seek funding for the Program via their usual funding appeals, and they could receive aid from the VA, local retirement communities and nursing homes.

I'm not sure of the details, but I would guess that the VA homes, nursing homes, and retirement communities would work with you on the program. The remaining piece of the program would be funding by others who can afford to do so, but cannot own a (another) pet themselves.


In addition to the Cat Friday program advertised in the latest ASPCA email, why not establish a "Grey Saturday" program which has incentives for people to adopt shelter pets that are over 6 years old? The cost could be reduced for older pets and senior adopters.

If people are too busy shopping today that they miss out on the 'Cat Friday' program, they still might adopt a "grey" pet on Saturday.
