We had a busy and successful day at our adoption event on Saturday, 7/22 at the Naperville Pet Supplies Plus. 16 kittens (Baby Ruth, Kit Kat, Twix, Astrid, Roxy, Pluto, Plato, Plaid, Plink, Peter, Winnie, Dasha, Nilla, Mac, Poo-Bah, Popover) and 4 adult cats (Tony II, Gibbs, Bette, Pearce) were the stars of our show.
Everyone did very well, enjoying petting and attention from our guests. The candy bar kittens (Baby Ruth, Kit Kat & Twix) were especially energetic - loving the attention and playing with everything that got near their cage!
Two kittens were adopted during the event by pre-approved adopters and one following the event:
- Pluto went home with a great couple from Downers Grove. He will have a 3 yr old male cat to keep him company.
- Plaid went home with a nice family from Elmhurst. He will be a special friend for their 12 yr old cat loving daughter. He will also have another cat & dog in the family to keep him company.
- Twix was adopted on Monday evening by a nice gal and her son who completed an application at the event. She will have a large long fur black male dog as a part-time companion.
- Kit Kat also went home on Tuesday with a young gal who had visited her at her foster home. She will have a 2 yr old female cat as a companion.
- 8 other kittens (Sorbetto & Spumone, Bibi & Bikini, Larry & Lars, Granita, Newt) and 1 adult (Mojo) were also adopted since our last event.
Thanks to Pet Supplies Plus for hosting this event, providing goodie bags to our adopters and providing several boxes of donated cat food & treats - very generous. In addition to the aforementioned adoptions, we had a number of guests who took cards and information for future adoptions. It was a good day!
Many thanks to the volunteers (Sara, Laurel, Lauren) and foster parents (Debbie, Diane, Karen, Julie, Marykellie, Edie, Mark) for making the day a success! Set-up and clean-up were a breeze thanks to Sara's, Laurel's, Lauren's & Debbie's help. Special thanks to Debbie for transporting all of the adult cats to/from the event, transporting the donations from the event and taking all of the laundry from the event - much appreciated!
Photography coverage of the event was great - thanks to Julie and Sara! Pre-event advertising and real time coverage of the event on Facebook were also also very effective - thanks to Connie! Thanks also to Debbie for updating our Adoptable Cats & Kittens board and to Mike for updating our Adoptable Cats & Kittens binder.
Our next adoption event is targeted for Saturday, 8/5, at the PetSmart at 63 Rice Lake Square in Wheaton, from 11am-3pm.
