Kitties for Keeps

From the Cat Network:
PetSmart Charities' annaul Spring Adoption Event is coming up, Friday-Sunday, May 4-6, because, “Each year, 10-15 million pets are abandoned in the U.S. Of those, 6-8 million enter shelters, and an estimated 3-4 million are euthanized, simply because they do not have a loving home.”

Cat Network has more than 300 ''beautiful, adoptable adult cats'' that need loving homes, as well as kittens ''of all colors and ages.''

Volunteers will have cats at the PetSmart adoption centers during store hours. Others will be shown at the following PetSmart locations on Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.:

13621 South Dixie Highway, Palmetto Bay
14025 SW 88 Street, Kendall

The Cat Network, Inc., is a nonprofit ''dedicated to humanely reducing cat overpopulation by educating the public about the need to sterilize their pets and strays; providing access to low-cost spay/neuter services for stray, homeless and abandoned cats; helping members in their efforts to place adoptable cats in loving homes; and advocating non-lethal population control and humane public policy.

''Its grassroots efforts have resulted in the spaying and neutering of over 29,000 of South Florida’s stray felines and the adoption of over 5,000 cats & kittens since it’s inception in 1995. Cat Network urges everyone who feeds cats to ensure they are sterilized.''

Please know that there is more than one Petsmart Charity in Miami-Dade, and in particular, one very very good one that works from the Petsmart in Aventura. It's Adopt-A-Stray, and the volunteers do a great job under the usually difficult conditions. Cat Network does a great job too, but they are not the only ones out there. A little recognition please for Adopt-A-Stray, please
