April Showers Bring Meow-ers!
ASC Offers Waived Adoption Fees for Felines
April 18, 2013
This weekend, the Tallahassee-Leon Community Animal Service Center (ASC) offers waived adoption fees for all cats and kittens. On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4:30 p.m., you’ll find many furry felines waiting for a furr-ever home.
Each year, thousands of kittens are born during spring and summer, and 50 of these cuties are waiting at the ASC to be your cuddly companion.
Cats are playful, affectionate, independent, self-cleaning animals that can reduce your blood pressure and keep you smiling with their antics. They also don't need to be housebroken, as using the litter box comes naturally to them. Taking care of a cat is also a great way to help teach children humane values and responsibility.
All cats adopted through the ASC are micro-chipped, vaccinated, collared (with an ID tag) and many are already spayed or neutered. If the cat/kitten you’d like to adopt has not been fixed, a $50 deposit (fully refundable with proof of surgery) will be required. If you’re concerned about finding the right feline fit for your family, the ASC’s staff can help answer questions about temperaments and personalities in order to help make the best possible match with potential adopters. Remember to bring your cat carrier with you to ensure a safe ride home for all.
The Animal Service Center, located adjacent to Tom Brown Park at 1125 Easterwood Drive, is operated and maintained by the City’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Affairs Department.
