To the Editor:
Suncoast Humane Society celebrates Adopt-a-Cat Month, traditionally observed in June, by getting an early start with a feline adoption special. Now through June 30, you can adopt a feline companion for just $10, plus rabies vaccine and County license tag. Every year in June the feline population increases heavily, filling shelters across the country with cats and kittens that need a loving home. The advantages of adopting a shelter cat go beyond this great, low adoption fee. All adoptable cats at Suncoast Humane Society are ready and eager to go home. This means they are already spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, tested for feline leukemia/AIDS, dewormed and microchipped.
Operating one of Florida’s few “open admissions” shelters, SHS never turns away an animal in need. Pet overpopulation is a tragedy that puts stress on the animals, the staff and SHS’s aging facility. This often causes an influx of homeless and abandoned animals being brought in and cared for at the shelter. Adoptable cats are available at Suncoast Humane Society’s Adoption Center located at 6781 San Casa Drive, Englewood, FL 34224, and at their six satellite adoption centers inside Petco in Port Charlotte and North Venice, and Pet Supermarket in Englewood, Venice, South Venice and North Port.
To view all adoptable animals (cats, dogs, bunnies, etc.) and learn more about the adoption process, please visit the website at www.humane.org or stop by the shelter in person. For more information and adoption hours, please call Suncoast Humane Society at (941) 474‐7884.
