Meow -- are you looking for a new cat to love during cat adoption month?
During the month of June, many D.C.-area shelters are waiving cat adoption fees, especially for older cats. The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria is holding a "Summer Olympicat Adoption Event" through June 30, waiving adoption fees for cats two years and older. The Washington Humane Society is also waiving fees for cats two and older.
The Washington Animal Rescue League is waiving fees for cats six months old and up -- and on Saturday, this is really almost too cute to bear, they're holding their "kitten shower," during which they'll collect donated kitten supplies and give out information about their kitten foster program.
The kitties in the slideshow below are all available for adoption, with no fees. Let us know if you bring one home!
We are always happy to hear from local shelters and rescue programs -- we love hearing about readers' pets, too. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
