Program helps cats find homes

A cat may have nine lives, but those lives can be pretty dreary if the animal is stuck in a kennel for weeks on end. After recently taking over management of the Homer Animal Shelter, we initiated a Spring is in the Air cat adoption special to provide incentive for would-be adopters. Cats had a significantly reduced adoption fee thanks to the following sponsors: Cosmic Kitchen, Fritz Creek General Store, Bay Club, End of the Road Accounting, Cheryl Campbell, Wagon Wheel Garden &Pets, AC General Contractor, Andy Haas, Bear Creek Winery, Techno Metal Post AK, Homer Veterinary Clinic and The Wave Room.

As the new staff settles in at the animal shelter, we are working on creative and inspiring events which will benefit the animals and get them into loving forever homes. There are significant costs associated with having an animal and the shelter is competing with lots of people out there who are re-homing animals at very low costs. By participating in programs such as Spring is in the Air; our sponsors helped provide healthy, immunized and altered cats to their new families.

We hope you will come visit us and see all the changes happening at the shelter. We are in the planning stages for an event to benefit the canines later this summer.
