Happy Tails: Cleo (Senior Cats Rule!)
During our first ever Adopt a Senior Cat Campaign in 2015, a total of 14 cats were adopted, including our eldest cat, a 15-year-old cat named Cleo who had been living at the shelter for 341 days.
We created the month-long campaign, “Fall in Love with the Senior Class of 2015,” to coincide with National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month – and featured a special adoption fee of just $7 for cats seven years or older.
Cleo’s adopting family was also a participant in the Humane Society’s innovative Shelter-at-Home foster program.
Animals of every age deserve a loving home. We are grateful to all of our adopters and especially applaud the individuals and families who are offering these senior pets a loving home for their golden years.
