Sponsored Cat Adoption Weekend finds Loving Homes and Supports Pets in Need
Animal Friends Alliance found homes for 44 felines during its fee-waived cat adoption special. The event was sponsored by Fort Collins businessman Dennis Schick of RE/MAX Alliance as part of the organization’s Saving Pets Challenge crowdfunding campaign.
Though the weather may be slowly getting cooler, it’s still “kitten season” in Northern Colorado and Animal Friends Alliance has taken in 1,915 cats and kittens so far in 2022. During the September 16–22 adoption event, dozens of families took home a new feline family member. This sponsored adoption weekend not only helped 44 of these cats and kittens find homes, but it raised funds to help Animal Friends Alliance compete in the Saving Pets Challenge, a national crowdfunding competition that runs throughout September.The month-long campaign has a goal to raise $150,000 for Animal Friends Alliance’s programs, including its cat and dog shelters, Community Cat Program, subsidized spay/neuter clinic, and Kibble Supply Pet Food Pantry. So far in 2022, Animal Friends Alliance has found homes for nearly 1,800 cats and 840 dogs, performed over 4,800 spay/neuter surgeries, and distributed over 46,800 pounds of pet food to families in need.
“Our goal is to help animals in need, and this event served the dual purpose of finding new families for these kitties and providing resources to help even more animals,” said Sarah Swanty, Executive Director of Animal Friends Alliance. “We’re so grateful to Dennis Schick for his generous sponsorship of cat and kitten adoption fees this weekend, which united loving families and raised over $12,500 toward saving more animals.”
