Found Animals Foundation invites the public to celebrate “Summer Buddies,” the two’s better than one cat adoption promotion, in which the organization will cover adoption fees for a second cat or kitten when two are adopted from any of the 14 city and county animal care center locations, through Sept. 30, 2010. The “Summer Buddies” promo follows Found Animals’ recent “Better With A Buddy” adoption event, which resulted in over 400 cats dogs and other pets finding new homes.

Since the single day event and launch of the promotion, over 212 pairs of cats or kittens from the various Los Angeles animal care center locations have found homes. The 2009 “Summer Buddies” promotion received a tremendous response, resulting in 195 cat pairs (390 cats total) adopted from just three participating Los Angeles locations.

This year the program expands to 14 participating city and county animal care centers and the LIVE Kitty Terrarium on display at the popular Westfield Culver City Center. Measuring 6-feet, 5-inches tall and 5-feet wide and armed with eight adorable kittens, organizers say it will be hard to pass without stopping to watch the playful antics of the kittens. Once viewers are engaged, Found Animals staff members and/or volunteers can offer promotional materials, adoption information, directions to the animal care center closest to you and even coloring books and crayons to children, teaching them about adoption and being a responsible pet owner. This live display supports the “Summer Buddies” promotion and will contribute to finding homes for cats. The Found Animals LIVE Kitty Terrarium display can next be seen on Saturday, August 14 and Sunday, August 15 from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Westfield Culver City Center (6000 Sepulveda Blvd., Culver City, CA 90230), in the Punctuation Station on the lower level by JC Penney.

The summer months represent the peak of “kitten season,” when local shelters are flooded with kittens in need of adoption. “Summer Buddies” is designed to address this animal welfare and community crisis by promoting cat adoptions. “Summer Buddies” shines a spotlight on the millions of animals available for adoption from municipal shelters each year.

“Our ‘Summer Buddies’ event was a huge success last year, and we’re poised to take it to new and amazing levels in 2010,” Aimee Gilbreath, executive director of Found Animals said in a release. “With a great location in the Westfield Culver City Center, more awareness, and potential for a strong turnout, we’re very excited for the impact we can have on ‘kitten season’ and the ability to save hundreds of cats throughout Southern California. This is yet another example of how Found Animals creatively and effectively shepherds animal welfare, and it’s something that I find especially inspiring. Plus, as many pet lovers would attest to, two cats are better than one!”

What are cats doing in a terrarium? Shouldn't it be a cattery?
