Many cats at PAWS and More in Washington felt the love on Valentine’s Day and were adopted. PAWS Director Amber Talbot tells KCII News that during their two-day free adoption promotion many pets found their forever homes, “We had such a successful event. So many people in the community came out to volunteer and spend time with the kitties, and show affection, and also so many adopted. We had 34 adoptions total. We were able to place a few on farm families that were seeking those outdoor homes. And a lot of people took advantage of the buddies that we were promoting. So, I would say over half of our kitties and adults that were adopted got to go home with their friend that they had spent time here snuggled up with.”

Talbot says it’s important for people to spay and neuter cats to help control the population, including outdoor neighborhood cats as well as indoor pets.
