Carrollton, TX (PressExposure) June 10, 2014 -- June is National Adopt-A-Cat Month, the "purr-fect" time to add a furry friend to the family and give a kitten or cat its new forever home. To help, Operation Kindness - the oldest and largest no-kill shelter in North Texas - is offering $25 off cat and kitten adoptions throughout the month of June.
How could anyone resist this face? Carlie is a beautiful, two-year-old Siamese that was found as a stray. She loves to approach people for petting sessions and purr time when they enter the Cat Room or Cat Porch at the shelter. She is free-roaming in the Cat Room, so she gets along well with other cats, but she does like her own space from time to time.
"Carlie is your typical Siamese. She's so beautiful and affectionate," said Nikki Walker, development director of Operation Kindness. "She loves people and will nuzzle your legs until you give her some attention. It would be hard not to love her."
Carlie is one of more than 90 cats and kittens waiting to be adopted from Operation Kindness. The shelter's goal is to match up the right pet with the right owner and hopes that discounting the adoption fee will encourage people to come in and check out the many sweet cats and kittens who currently call Operation Kindness home.
"We want potential adopters to understand what it means when they adopt a cat or dog," says Jim Hanophy, Operation Kindness CEO. "Our furry friends just want a safe, warm place where they feel loved and protected. In return, they will give you unconditional love. Bringing an animal into your home is a commitment, but it's worth it when you open your heart to them."
The American Humane Association began promoting Adopt-A-Cat Month in 1975 to highlight overcrowding issues in shelters. The association estimates that roughly four million cats and kittens end up in shelters every year.
On average, Operation Kindness adopts out 1,000 cats per year. Currently, it has more than 90 adult cats and kittens ready for adoption. To adopt Carlie or one of her feline friends, visit Operation Kindness at 3201 Earhart Drive in Carrollton, TX, 75006.
