PANTHERS & TIGERS Need Homes, OH MY!

Posted Sept. 07, 2012, at 1:05 p.m.

The Ark Animal Shelter has been invited to participate in grand adoption event at the new Tractor Supply Store located in Ellsworth next to Marden’s.

The event will take place on Saturday, September 15, and will start at 10AM.

The Ark will have many kittens on hand available for adoption. Due to the overflowing numbers of cats and kittens in all of our area shelters our kitten adoption fees will be reduced to $50 from the regular fee of $100. We have in particular, lots of black and tiger cats & kittens. These two colors of cats are often overlooked, and it has nothing to do with their personalities, which are FANTASTIC! There are several good reasons to adopt a black cat, and I’ll just name a few. They look like little panthers. Holding a black cat is very slimming. Black cats don’t care what color YOU are. Love knows no color. The #1 reason to adopt a black cat is that they are the least likely to be adopted. These kittens are between the ages of 3 – 6 months old., and well socialized. They have been spayed/neutered, tested for FeLV/FIV, vaccinated for distemper, as well as having several parasite treatments, including flea preventatives.

The Ark is accepting adoption applications in advance of this event so that we can send kittens home that same day. You can visit our web site www.thearkpets.org to download our adoption application, you can also come to the shelter on 60 Barber Lane in Cherryfield to fill out an application or you can stop by Tractor Supply Store and ask for our adoption application. Once you have filled it out you will need to e mail, fax or drop off the completed application at the shelter to be processed. If you are unable to do any of the above, we will do our best to facilitate adoptions from the Tractor supply Store provided that you have the following information on hand. You will need to bring proof of homeownership, i.e. copy of a tax bill with your physical address on it, or a rental lease agreement, if you rent. (we can’t adopt to people in a rental without the landlords approval or a written lease agreement stating you can have pets) We’ll also need to see up to date rabies certificates for any pets that you may already have.

Although we will only have kittens at this event the shelter is full of lovely adult cats in need of homes. From now until the end of September The Ark will waive ALL adoption fees on adult cats for approved homes.

As a no kill animal shelter The Ark is committed to life long support of the animals that arrive at our shelter. We are often referred to as “the shelter of last resort.” As we accept older pets in need of medical attention. The shelter has many adult cats just waiting for loving homes, ranging in ages 1 – 9 years old. They come in all sizes, and colors, and lengths of hair variations. You can visit our web site or find us on Petfinder to see all of the cats that are looking for loving homes. All of our pets are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines including rabies, have been treated for parasites as well as treated with flea preventatives. Our dogs are also tested for Heartworm/Lyme disease, and then treated accordingly, whether it be to see a vet to be treated for Heartworm or Lyme or given a monthly preventative.

We hope to see you on Saturday, September 15, at the Tractor Supply Store. For more information please contact The Ark, 546-3484, or visit us at 60 Barber Lane, Cherryfield, on Tuesday & Saturday 12-6 PM, Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday 12-4 PM.
