June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month!
Quick, easy ways to participate.
For pet parents who have rescued their animals from shelters, every month is cause for celebration. But this June, rescue organizations and shelters are shining the spotlight on the millions of cats in search of a loving forever home through the initiative Adopt a Shelter Cat Month.
At Zootoo, we're hoping that the month of June brings shelter cats to wonderful pet parents -- and here are some of our favorite ways to honor the occasion and help these felines find their purr-fect match.
Let your friends know where to find shelter cats who are looking for their own loving homes. Whether you're reaching out to your next-door neighbor or a friend across the country, Zootoo's "Adoptable Pets" page, powered by Petfinder, makes it a breeze to match potential pet parents with their new companions.
Another easy way to help shelter cats this month? Promote the Fee-Waived Cat Adoption initiative from the ASPCA and Fresh Step litter. To help spread the word and encourage similar programs, Fresh Step litter will donate $1 (up to $100,000) to the ASPCA for every "like" received on its Facebook page from June 1 through July 31, 2011. The money will help support this program and other cat care initiatives.
Volunteer or make a donation at your local animal rescue center. Find one near you through Zootoo's Pet Service Finder. And remember, if you don't have cash to give, many shelters are eager to accept gently used items that can help care for kitties as they wait for new homes, so ask your local rescue group if they have any needs.
If you have a website or blog, add a Petfinder widget or banner in support of Adopt a Shelter Cat month. You can find fun, eye-catching downloads by visiting the Petfinder download center.

I always volunteer for a rescue group today I got some one interested in a small gray kitten they met the kitten and fell in love with it and took it home. I love cats I am trying to help out a stray male cat by my house right now that I call Marten he is not neutered but that is not my main concern about him the main concern is that he is injured badly it looks like a person took a shovel or a foot to his back right hip. Poor Marten is even more timid than he was before now and I will be sure to take good care of him.
