Half-Price Half Pints Kitten Adoption Special

in 00:00 hours.

Location: Cedar Valley Humane Society, 7411 Mt. Vernon Rd SE, Cedar Rapids
Starts: October 19 2014 @ 12:00 PM
Ends: November 02 2014 @ 07:00 PM

We have more than 60 kittens in our care right now, so we're holding a kitten adoption special! Our Half-Price Half Pints adoption special will run through November 2. All kittens under one year old are only $45. We have more than 20 adorable kittens in our kitten adoption room, as well as a few older kittens (eight to nine months old) in our adult cat adoption area. As they go to their new homes, we'll move more kittens into their place. All kittens have been spayed/neutered, deparasitized, and microchipped. They all have received age-appropriate vaccinations. Some of these vaccinations are part of a series, and they must be administered a certain amount of time apart, so you should expect to complete the series with your veterinarian. Standard adoption processes apply.

Dress up the Dobie and come on down to the Zoe's Deli Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest at the Nancy Doreen Huffman Dog Park in Mount Vernon.

If you've always wanted more information about the Cedar Valley Humane Society and the work we do, this would be a fun, low-key event to stop and chat with our wonderful volunteers. We might even have a dog or two on hand for you to meet and fall in love with. (Will they be costumed? You'll have to stop by and see!)

The event will be held rain or shine. The registration fee is $5 per dog, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to support the Nancy Doreen Huffman Dog Park.
