Did you know there are more than nine reasons you might be healthier when sharing your life with cats, or that for $9 you can become part of a nationwide life-saving movement? Adopt a feline friend from LifeLine Animal Project during the special “9 Lives for $9,” adoption event and you become part of something important.
Come meet the adoptable cats and adolescent kittens rescued by LifeLine Animal Project on Nov. 16-18. Open House at LifeLine’s Kitty Motel, 129 Lake Street, Avondale Estates, will be held 2 p.m. – 7 p.m. on that Friday and Saturday and 12 noon – 5 p.m. Sunday.
It is part of a promotion from Nov. 10 to Nov. 18 across the United States, supported by national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society.
“For nine days in November we are making it so easy for people to meet our fabulous felines who are ready to go home with you. And for just $9, you can save a cat who could end up saving you**, said Rebecca Guinn, founder and executive director of LifeLine. “Every day 9,000 animals are killed in shelters simply because they don’t have homes. Just by adopting a cat or two, everyone can be part of the nationwide movement to end the killing of adoptable, treatable animals.”
“When you perform the lifesaving act of adopting cats, your life is better too,” said Mickie Blair, LifeLine’s cat rehabilitation director. “You are bringing purring balls of love into your home that can help you lower your risk of a heart attack, boost your immune system, reduce your blood pressure, and a whole host of other health benefits, too. Plus if laughter is the best medicine, cats can provide a daily dose with their antics or just snuggle up and let you know everything’s going to be OK.”
This adoption event is part of Best Friends Animal Society’s national mission of No More Homeless Pets®, which aims to end the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. LifeLine Animal Project is a participating member of the No More Homeless Pets® Network, a program of Best Friends Animal Society, offers help and support to animal rescue groups that save lives in their communities.
