Adopt An Adorable New Family Member This June!

June is Adopt A Cat Month! This time of year kittens are at their peak! You can bring home a brand new family member! The best place to go to do this is your local shelter. Rescue your newest family member and support your local shelter this June. Multnomah County Animal Services is a good place to start your search for the cat for your family.

When thinking of adopting a cat there is a good checklist you should look over to make sure you and your family are truly ready for the commitment of this new family member. The fifth one is to make sure your bank account is ready to support your fluffy new family member.

Budget for the short- and long-term costs of a cat. Understand any pet is a responsibility and there’s a cost associated with that. A cat adopted from a shelter is a bargain; many facilities will have already provided spaying or neutering, initial vaccines, and a microchip for permanent identification.
