Rescued animals ready for adoption
Posted by Susan Gilmore
Cats rescued from Joplin, Missouri, ravaged by a tornado in May, have arrived in Seattle and will be up for adoption this Saturday.
The kittens arrived in early July and were examined, with many suffering from various stages of upper respiratory infections. They were cared for by PAWS veterinarians and foster families.
"They've been through a tragedy we can only imagine," says Kay Joubert, PAWS director of companion animal services, in a release. "It's so good to see them ready for new homes."
The trip was organized by the ASPCA and the cats and kittens were divided between PAWS and the NOAH Center in Stanwood.
The PAWS cats will be available for adoption Saturday from 12:30 to 4 p.m. at PAWS Cat City, 5200 Roosevelt Way N.E., suite B. The adoption fee for kittens is $110.00. This includes neuter/spay surgery, microchip, vaccinations, and a certificate for a free follow up vet exam.
In another adoption event, people interesting adopting a miniature pinscher or a papillon rescued recently from a Lake Stevens home can view pictures on-line beginning Friday and submit an application for adoption. Applications are on the City of Everett website www.ci.everett.wa.us/default.aspx?ID=1981
The applications can be mailed, faxed, or dropped off at the shelter. E-mail applications won't be accepted. Pictures and biographies of the dogs can be viewed at http://www.petango.com.
The fax number is 425-257-6063.
