**Press Release From Spokane Humane Society**

This Saturday May 25th The Spokane Humane Society is celebrating Caturday! Visit us from 11am – 5pm and adopt a furry feline five months or older and pay no adoption fee (license fee may still apply). We are overloaded with fantastic felines currently and need to find them loving homes! 

"When cats are not spayed or neutered, they rapidly reproduce, and the spring and summer is that time of year when cats get busy, resulting in more kittens showing up at our door," says Dave Richardson, Executive Director. "We need the community to visit and meet all the great cats we have here. We have many deserving cats and kittens to choose from. It's the perfect time to promote cat adoptions because the spring and summer months have brought in tons of cats and kittens into our shelter." 

The top three reasons that the Spokane Humane Society encourages people to adopt a shelter cat:

1. If you have kids, cat saliva is a powerful cleaning agent. While kittens are hard to resist, adult cats are often better suited to families with young children. Mature cats respond better to the clumsy handling of inquisitive toddlers. By adopting, you'll be helping to solve a community wide crisis and be loved by cats everywhere. We have many cats and kittens available to be adopted now!

2. We have a few round cats whose enormous guts will help keep your hardwood floors shiny. All of our cats are spay/neutered, are micro-chipped and come with a free health exam from practically any veterinarian in our community. No hassles, we already fixed 'em.  Take them home and help them lose their weight! 

3. A shelter cat will make that old worn out couch look beautiful. Seriously, a kitty livens up any living space! 

The mission of the Spokane Humane Society is to relieve the suffering and abuse of all animals and to foster an awareness of their importance in our lives through leadership in compassionate care and placement, public education, and humane services"  

The Spokane Humane Society is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization last year helping nearly 3000 animals. In 2008 please remember our community's unwanted companion animals by choosing to make caring for critters a priority… please opt to adopt.  

To get more information on adopting pets or volunteer opportunities please contact the Spokane Humane Society at (509) 467-5235.
