From a news release:
The SPCA of Anne Arundel County is joining forces with national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society during a special promotion.
"9 Lives for $9" runs through June 22, which highlights the many reasons cats and kittens will enrich the lives of the people who adopt them.
"We have so many wonderful cats and kittens ready to go home with you. If you've had that nagging feeling 'something' was missing in your life, Best Friends has created a video highlighting nine reasons - from the whimsical to the serious that may help you realize that 'something missing' is a cat or kitten," said Rita Melvin, Development & Programs Manger of the SPCA of Anne Arundel County.
Tami Simon, Best Friends' network events supervisor for the No More Homeless Pets Network, said "Reducing adoption fees during last year's promotion helped to increase cat adoption numbers, and some of our partners even reported increased adoptions for dogs and other species as well. The reduced adoption fees and the special event feel of the '9 Lives for 9 Dollars' promotion encourages people to consider adopting rescued cats."
Jackson Galaxy, cat behaviorist, author and star of Animal Planet's "My Cat From Hell" said the 9 Lives for $9 adoption promotion creates a "wonderful opportunity to add some love to your life and save a cat's life at the same time. That's why I'm so excited to be a part of the Best Friend's special adoption drive. It's a great time to add some love to your life and save a cat's life. Talk about a win/win! We all have a part to play if we want to save them all; 9 Lives for $9 makes it easy. What you can do is get a cat! If you have one, get another!"
In addition to the 9 Lives for $9 adoption promotion for cats, we will have our Lonely Hearts Weekend adoption special where any dog over the age of two years old will have a reduced adoption fee (50%).
The SPCA of Anne Arundel County is a participating member of the No More Homeless Pets Network®, a program of Best Friends Animal Society that offers help and support to animal rescue groups that save lives in their communities.
