National Cat Adoption Promotion

National Cat Adoption Promotion

June 1 - 30, 2016

Registration to participate has closed.

Best Friends new campaign, “Man Enough,” was aimed at saving the lives of cats across the country. Participating partners offered $10 on all or a selection of cats and kittens for Father’s Day throughout the month of June. This year, 141 partners, including 48 shelters, found loving homes for 6,077 animals.

Best Friends national adoption promotions not only help pets in your area find homes — they benefit your entire organization. Get more information on why offering reduced fees is an effective way to boost adoptions.
