Mega-Kitten Adoption Event in NYC This Weekend!

Monday, August 20, 2012 - 2:30pm

Smitten by kittens? Well, good news—we’re transforming our mobile adoption unit into a Kitten Karavan this weekend! The ASPCA Adoption Center has received an overwhelming number of young kittens this summer, and we’re taking them on the road in an effort to find them loving homes.

“No kitten should have to grow up in a shelter, but unfortunately that’s what we have been seeing these past few months,” says Gail Buchwald, Senior Vice President of the ASPCA’s Adoption Center. “We are urging everyone who has considered adopting to come to our Kitten Karavan this weekend and help us empty our cages.”

Adoption fees for kittens younger than four months are just $99 and $50 for all kittens and cats ages four months to three years. Plus, the Buddy System is in full swing—adopt one kitten and you can bring home another for no additional fee.

Where: St. Anthony’s Market
             West Houston Street between Thompson and MacDougal Streets
             Manhattan, NY

When: Saturday, August 25 and Sunday, August 26, 1:00-5:00 P.M.

What to Bring: In order to adopt, potential adopters should bring the following: two forms of identification, one with their current address (such as a utility bill) and one government-issued photo ID (such as a driver’s license, passport, military ID, or non-driver ID). Adopters may also be asked to provide one personal reference, reachable by phone. The ASPCA strongly encourages all members of the household to come to the van to meet their potential pet.
