June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month! While Kitty Kasa is dedicated to advocating for shelter kitties year-round, they deserve a little extra attention in June. Especially since the United States alone sees about 3.2 million cats enter shelters each year. Here are a couple of ways that you can celebrate Adopt a Shelter Cat Month and help a rescue kitty near you!

 

Adopt, Don't Shop

The ultimate way you can celebrate Adopt a Shelter Cat Month is by giving a special shelter cat a new home. Most local animal shelters are overflowing with an influx of cats, especially now during kitten season. Getting these cats into a loving and responsible home is the best way to show support for kitties in need.

Donate to Your Local Kitty Rescue

Aren't ready to bring another furry friend into your home yet? Donating to your local kitty rescue is the next best thing! Gifting a donation in the form of money, supplies, or volunteer hours is a great way to help shelter cats without having to change your family dynamic.

Promote a Virtual Fundraiser 

Promoting a virtual fundraiser brings some much-needed attention to shelter organizations that could really use a hand. While gifting individual donations is extremely helpful, encouraging your friends to do the same increases your positive impact so much more! You can even team up with your favorite shelter to determine the best way to collect donations on their behalf.

Need help getting a virtual fundraiser up and running? Well, the ASPCA has got you covered! Just for Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, they have set up a virtual campaign builder tool that allows you to create your own campaign that you and your friends can promote and donate to. Each donation will go towards the ASPCA's ongoing rescue efforts.

 

Have other ideas on how you can help our feline furriends? We want to hear them (and don't be afraid to get creative). No matter how you choose to observe Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, just remember that even the smallest effort helps make a difference for all rescue cats. Share this blog and any other ideas you have to help cats in need this month. Every little bit helps!
