June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month

There are thousands of  homeless animals in Lake County waiting for families to adopt them. Humane organizations in Lake County and around the country want to spread the word about shelter cats during the month of June. There are hundreds of organizations and shelters that service Lake County, and adopting a cat can be a simple as a trip to your local Petsmart or Petco. Both of these major national retailers recognize the problems of pet over-population and homelessness. As a part of their business model, they have chosen to offer shelter animals for adoption in-store, rather than cats or dogs from breeders.

Many shelter cats have all of their medical needs taken care of, and are already litter box trained. Shelters and rescue groups work very hard to ensure that the right cat is paired with the right family; their goal is a successful and lasting adoption. Adding a cat to you family can be very rewarding, and helping to care for animals is a great lesson in responsibility for kids of all ages.
