Yesterday, Feral Fixers held another Adoption Event at the Rice Lake Square PetsMart in Wheaton. Feral Fixers Board member and Adoption coordinator Sue gives us the details:
Just a quick recap on the adoption event today.
It was a quieter day than some at PetSmart today. Not a lot of customers - possibly due to the cold & dreary weather.
However, we had a wonderful group of kittens - 29 in all! Everyone was very well behaved - some more happy about being there than others ;-) There were kittens being held, getting photographed, and meeting new people all afternoon long.
While most of the folks that stopped by were just looking, Penny won the heart of a 13 yr old girl, who did an outstanding job of convincing her mom to take Penny home. This family has 4 other cats, but had 5 in the past. So Penny will have lots of the feline companionship she enjoys. Mom is clearly a wonderful cat lover.
Another couple placed a hold on Twix. Unfortunately, he was coming down with a cold, so not available to be taken home today. Hopefully he will be ready to go home in a week or so.
We also had a wonderful group of volunteers at the event, including Bernie, Toni, Debbie, Arlene, and Lauren. They have set-up and clean-up down to a science, so it all goes very quickly - thanks so much! Gail came by and took wonderful photos of all of the kittens. Meggie also stopped by later in the afternoon and took some photos.
Thanks to the foster moms that brought their kittens to this event, including Joanna, Haley, Bethany, Judy P, Jennifer, Amaris, Mary Rosa, Francine, and Julie. Special thanks to several of the foster moms that also stayed and helped with the event. This included Haley, Julie, and Mary Rosa. Judy W brought Francine's fosters to the event and stayed for quite awhile to help. Tammy also stopped by and brought some supplies. Thanks much!
I will keep you all posted.
Thank you Sue and thank you to all the volunteers (and Fosters!) who came out to help!
