BHS Press Release: BUTTE HUMANE SOCIETY HOSTS “KITTYPALOOZA”

BUTTE HUMANE SOCIETY HOSTS “KITTYPALOOZA”, WAIVES ADULT CAT ADOPTION FEES

Don’t Miss Chico’s Biggest Rock ‘N’ Roll Adopt-a-thon of the Year

 

(CHICO, CA) – It’s your chance to get a screamin’ deal on a new feline friend August 18th through the 23rd by coming to Kittypalooza! For one week only, Butte Humane Society (BHS) is charging “no cover” on adult cat adoptions, and adoptive agents have the option of making an offer on one of our “rising star” kittens. Don’t miss your opportunity to sign big talents; such as Macklemeow, Ringo Purr, Beyonspay, Tom Petme, and Kitty Purry! Feline stars are 2-for-one as always, so don’t hesitate to sign multiple acts like Claws ‘N’ Noses and Purrvana.

Everyone who adopts during “Kittypalooza” will gain an adorable feline friend that has already been spayed or neutered, is microchipped and up-to-date on vaccinations, plus all adopters will be entered to win a “Signing Bonus” kitty care package! Every pet adopted from BHS also comes with 30 days of free pet health insurance and a free veterinary health check so you can get your new superstar started on the road to a healthy, successful career as your personal entertainer.

Summer is a very busy time for animal shelters in the feline talent scene. Most shelters end up booking more acts than they know what to do with, and BHS is no different. Help us out by offering your home as a venue, and your new feline superstar will be so grateful he or she will perform for you every day – in exchange for food, pets, the whole bed…what do you want from a feline diva?

Butte Humane Society’s Cat Adoption Center is located at 587 Country Drive in Chico. Adoption hours are 12 pm to 6 pm, Monday through Saturday.  To view currently available animals or for more information on adoption, please visit www.buttehumane.org/adopt, or call 343-7917 x164 to speak to an adoptions counselor.
