Kelly at the Austin Humane Society sent us a heads up about a lot of wonderful kitties that are up for adoption. This weekend it's a Name Your 'PURRICE' Weekend to help a kitty get a great new loving home.
"Name Your Purrice" cat adoption event this weekendSaturday (4/27) & Sunday (4/28) ). ATX city animal shelter (AAC) is way overloaded with cats, so the Austin Humane Society have stepped in to help. They have brought in 44 of their cats to their shelter in the past 24 hours. Every adoption this weekend will help them both out greatly, so the ATX Humane Society is allowing adopters to name their own price for cats. All the same rules still apply. Adopters must fill out an application, go through all the same questions, and meet with an adoption counselor.
