CLEVELAND - Animal welfare groups in our region are teaming up with each other and PetSmart Charities® on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for a Royal Wedding Adoption CATs-travaganza.
The Cleveland APL is joining forces with local animal welfare groups and PetSmart Charties for a special event this weekend called the "Royal Wedding CATs-travaganza." Ayse Dunlap, from the APL, brought Peko to the studios Tuesday to help promote this event. Peko is an 8-year-old cat whose owner became ill and needed to bring this lovable cat to the shelter for care. Peko is looking to live happily ever after in a new castle.
The Cleveland Animal Protective League (APL), Geauga Humane Society's Rescue Village, PAWS Ohio, and Pawsibilities (Humane Society of Greater Akron) have come together and are reducing their cat adoption fees to to $5 for the first adult cat (aged 1 year old and up) or $20 for the first kitten (less than 1 year old) adopted to each household. The Cleveland APL will honor this fee all three days at its 1729 Willey Ave. animal shelter location in Cleveland and on Sunday, May 1 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Willoughby PetSmart store.
