'Cat-a-palooza' free cat adoption event this weekend in Orlando

Posted: Updated:
The Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando has announced the first ever "Cat-a-palooza!"  The event, planned for June 21 and 22, will seek to find homes for cats and kittens in animal shelters in Orlando and Sanford.  

Hill’s Pet Nutrition is underwriting the costs for the first 100 felines adopted.

“Summer is the time of year we receive the most cats, and yet adoptions are low,” says Kerri Burns, executive director of the Pet Alliance, formerly known as the SPCA of Central Florida.The shelters are filled to capacity, Burns adds.

In addition to the waived fees, every adoptive cat owner also will receive a free bag of Hill’s Science Diet cat food, six months of flea and heart-worm prevention and free pet-health insurance. 

The first 20 cats adopted during Cat-a-palooza will receive a designer cat bed filled with toys and treats, a $200 value.On average, the Pet Alliance invests $254 in every adoptable cat. That goes towards spay and neuter costs, permanent microchips, vaccines, flea treatment and veterinary costs -- not to mention housing and food.
