On Wednesday, August 12, we hosted our very first adoption special since the pandemic hit in mid-March—#Adopt-A-Thon2020! Since Lollypop Farm is still not accessible to the public except by adoption appointment, interested adopters were able to sign up in advance for a specific time slot to come to the shelter. They then met with an adoption counselor, who learned what sort of feline friend they were looking for and matched families with cats waiting for homes.
This time of year, cats and kittens are brought to Lollypop Farm every day, and we needed to make space for everyone. Adopters who participated in our Adopt-A-Thon were both finding their new feline family member, and saving a life.
The adoption special featured 50% off all cats and kittens, and waived adoption fees for senior cats 6 years and older. All cats that went home after the Adopt-A-Thon were spayed and neutered, checked out by a veterinarian in our clinic, had flea treatment, deworming, been microchipped, got an ID tag, and more!
Several adopters shared photos on social media to show how quickly their new feline family members were adjusting. Momix, who was renamed Espresso, was immediately comfortable in her new surroundings and quickly claimed her favorite spot on the couch.
At the end of a day-long adoption special, there’s nothing we like to see more than empty kitty condos. Thank you to everyone who attended and welcomed new feline family members into their homes!
