On Sunday, Feral Fixers held another Adoption Event at the PetSmart in Rice Lake Square in Wheaton. Feral Fixers Board member and Adoption Coordinator Sue tells us what transpired:
We had another successful adoption event today at the Rice Lake Square PetSmart in Wheaton. This was the final day of PetSmart's National Adoption Weekend. While the foot traffic in the store may have been a bit light due to the Bears/Packers game, those folks that did come were serious about wanting to adopt :-)
We had plenty of wonderful kittens and cats available for them to choose from! 23 kittens (Pietro, Lemon Drop, Trey, Hasbro, Hamilton, Choco, Cancun, Campbell, Benny, Addison, Duncan, Duffy, Tracy, Harry, Stitch, Dinah, Disney, Shadow, Samurai, Seneca, Silhouette, Skeeter, Blaze) & 5 adults (Storm, Zeke, Zeva, Harlem & Lucas) were in attendance.
Three kittens were adopted during the event to two pre-approved adopters. A wonderful family from West Chicago adopted Hasbro and Hamilton. These are their first kittens (they currently have fish and birds) so they were very excited. A prior Feral Fixer's adopter (previously adopted Owen) adopted Shadow as a companion for Owen.
Four other potential adopters put holds on 5 of our cats and kittens at the event, including Harlem, Hilda, Francesca & Freya, and Disney. I will be doing the vet checks on Monday and following up with them.
A very busy and productive day :-) !
Many thanks to the volunteers and fosters who made the event a success, including Toni, Sara, Lauren, Debbie, Bethany, Janine, Natalie, Vey, Marissa, Soni, Cheri, Monica, Joanna, Stephanie and Catherine/Nick! Special thanks to Judy for bringing 2 of her fosters and spending some time at the event, and to Sara for handling the photography.
Our next adoption event is scheduled for Saturday, 9/26, 11am-3pm at the Rice Lake Square PetSmart. This will be followed by an event at Two Bostons on 75th St in Naperville on Saturday, 10/3, 12-3pm.
