Lee County Domestic Animal Services will kick off a Black Tie Affair on Black Saturday. Beginning Nov. 30, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, all black and mostly black cats will be available for adoption for just $10. Animal Services always offers two-for-one cat adoptions so adopters have the option of getting two cats for $10! The special will run until all the cats have found new homes!
For the event, felines will be wearing their little black dresses and tuxedos as black cats are always in formal attire. "Black cats are classy, elegant, and versatile," says Ria Brown, LCDAS spokesperson. "This is a special opportunity to discover how personable and entertaining these often overlooked cats can be."
The variety available includes solid black, tuxedo (black and white), tortoise shell, and black tabby, not to mention short, medium, and long haired cats. Potential adopters will have lots to choose from and are encouraged to check the agency's website at www.leelostpets.com for a peek at the cats and kittens currently available or to submit an adoption application online. The site updates hourly.
All cats adopted are sterilized and receive age appropriate vaccinations, flea treatment, de-worming, microchip ID, feline aids and leukemia test, and county license for cats three months and older. The adoption package is valued at over $500 making it an even better opportunity to add a new feline companion to your family.
The shelter is at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriff's Office. Regular adoption hours are Monday through Saturday from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm including Black Saturday, Nov. 30.
