Yesterday, in conjunction with the good folks at PetSmart, Feral Fixers held another Adoption Event. Feral Fixers Board member and Adoption Coordinator Sue gives us the details:
Despite the torrential rains prior to the start of the event and when we were unloading the supplies at PetSmart, it was a very busy and productive adoption event :-)
We had 15 kittens and 2 adults in attendance. All were very sweet and dealt well with all of the commotion.
Kittens: Armani, Berlin, Cubbie, Colada, Apertif, Koko, Trey, Ashlee, Fatima, Heloise, Aspen, Alamo, Cheddar, Chessie & Checker
Adults: Angel and Smoochie
We received 9 new adoption applications (a new record!), which resulted in 2 adoptions during the event, and may result in 4-6 adoptions within the next week. We also had a pre-approved adopter who adopted 1 kitten at the event, and plans to adopt another within the next week.
Fatima went home with a couple from Hanover Park. They are planning to meet Hoss on Thursday, and may adopt him as a companion for Fatima.
Berlin went home with a lady from Lombard. She will have a young male cat and a male dog as companions.
Cubbie went home with a couple from Streamwood. They also plan to adopt Armani, and will be picking him up shortly.
We were all busy non-stop talking to folks and showing them our wonderful cats & kittens. Many thanks to Debbie, Sara, Toni, Judy, and Bethany for helping to show off our wonderful cats & kittens, meeting with people, screening potential adopters, and filling out adoption paperwork. Special thanks to Sara for also being our photographer and making the lunch run.
Many thanks also to all of the fosters who brought cats & kittens to the event, including Debbie, Bethany, Judy, Heather, and Stephanie. Special thanks to Tammy for stopping by and helping some of our shyer kitties adjust to the store environment. Thanks also to Mike for doing a great job of updating our binder, and to Connie and Ted for doing the publicity for this event.
Our next PetSmart adoption event will be on Saturday, 11/14, which is PetSmart National Adoption Weekend.
Thanks much to everyone for the make the day successful!
Thank you Sue and a huge thank you to the Fosters and Volunteers (and Adopters!) who make events like this possible!
