On Tuesday night, NBC 12 ran a news story about a litter of eight kittens that was found by an elderly couple. After calling countless rescue organizations, the couple could not find a group that would take in all eight, so CARE stepped up to help. View the full story! The kittens will receive their first vaccinations on Thursday and they will be up for adoption on Saturday from 12 – 3 pm at the Staples Mill Petco. If you are interested in adopting one of the kittens, please know that there will be an adoption fee to help cover their medical costs. All cats and kittens will be discounted for the day ($63 adoption fee). Additionally, anyone interested in adopting a kitten must fill out an application and be approved for adoption. CARE will determine if the adoption is a suitable placement for a kitten. To jump-start the adoption process and be pre-approved before Saturday, fill out our online application and a volunteer will contact you after reviewing your application. Before filling out the adoption application, please review our adoption process and things to consider before adopting a pet.
*Excluding sale items.

Whenever a speciality breed cat is added to our website, there is always a lot of interest. For instance, CARE has recieved as many as five applications within 48 hours for a speciality breed kitten. And this is not an isolated incident – people come out of the woodwork to adopt speciality breeds or cats that are particularly beautiful or unique-looking. Yet adult cats or even kittens that are “ordinary” looking are passed over even though they might have more affectionate temperments than that beautiful Siamese or Maine Coon. Don’t get this wrong – ALL cats need good homes, and it’s encouraging that the people that are interested in a specific breed are considering adopting rather than buying from a breeder. But it’s still heartbreaking that it’s so much harder to find homes for cats that aren’t as cute or pretty, even though their personalities are often the most affectionate. Take a chance on an “ordinary” cat – you might find that it’s a better match than a high-strung Siamese or high-maintance Persian. And if you’re not in the market to adopt, please share this image to help less adoptable cats find forever homes.
