Are you considering adding a cat to your family?

There are many benefits to bringing a kitty into your home, but when you go to a shelter and choose a rescue, you are doing so much more than saving one life.


Of the cats entering US shelters each year (approximately 3.4 million cats) 37% are adopted, 41% are euthanized and 5% are returned to their owners.

The more cats that are adopted means the more cats a shelter or rescue can help.

So not only are you helping by adopting, but you’re helping the next kitty that will come in its place.


In this video Gary wants to adopt a cat, he makes many visits to the shelter before he makes up his mind.

I wonder which one he will adopt?


I urge everyone to consider adoption when deciding to add a furry friend to your family, you could save the lives of hundreds of cats in the process.
