‘Be Mine, Feline’ Matches Felines with Families
Animal Shelter Hosts Special Adoption Event Beginning February 5th
The Fairfax County Animal Shelter will host a special adoption beginning Feb. 5 called “Be Mine, Feline.” The adoption event is a focus on cats and kittens that are available for adoption at the shelter. As part of the adoption, the shelter is offering a special assessment of each cat’s personality to help prospective adopters find the right feline for their family.
The shelter received 161 cats from a single home in a hoarding case in November 2010. Many of those cats are now healthy, available and looking for safe, loving, permanent homes. Many other cats and kittens staying at the shelter this winter will also be available.
“Throughout February, the shelter will be in the business of matchmaking—helping adopters match the right cat for their lifestyle and for their home,” says Dr. Karen Diviney, director of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter.
The special adoption promotion will last through February 28.
To view cats (and other animals) available for adoption, visit the shelter Tuesdays through Fridays 12 p.m. – 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Also, to meet a different shelter animal each week, visits www.fairfaxcounty.gov/police for our Adopt-A-Pet feature and learn more about an animal in search of a loving home. For more information, call the Fairfax County Animal Shelter at 703-830-1100.
