June is Adopt-A-Cat Month

By Cuteness Team

Though every month is the perfect month for adopting a shelter cat, the springtime months are known as "kitten season"—that is, the time of year when feline birthing hits its peak. Unfortunately, many of these kittens are under threat of being euthanized in shelters unless they're lucky enough to find forever homes. That's why the American Humane Association chose June to be "Adopt-A-Cat Month," and we'd like to support these efforts by urging all members of our animal-loving community to seriously consider welcoming a deserving shelter cat (or two) into your family.


Find a shelter near you using Pet Finder or Adopt A Pet. Then, read American Humane Society's extremely helpful Top Ten Checklist For Adopting a Cat.
