Caturday Saturday on Clear The Shelters Day!

Teri says she has us four senior kitties to take care of, and that financial responsibility is about all she can handle right now...but we want to do a little something to help those kitties in need who are waiting in shelters and foster care for their forever homes!

That's where Clear the Shelters Day comes in! All around the USA, in nearly every city, shelters have joined in this adoption initiate, almost 700 of them!! We think that is news worth sharing! 

And it happens to fall on Caturday Saturday this year and we all know how many kitties end up in shelters, so we had to do our part in telling our friends about Clear the Shelters Day!

This nationwide pet adoption event is a team effort with NBCUniversal owned TV stations and last year nearly 20,000 pets left 400 shelters to start their new life in their forever homes! Animal shelters across the country come together today, July 23 for the 2nd annual Clear The Shelters event! This nationwide pet adoption event aims to connect animals in need with loving new families. More than 19,000 pets were adopted from 400 shelters during last year's #Cleartheshelters event.

If you have been thinking of adding a new pet to your family, is the day to do it! All the adoption fees are waived! You can buy lots of noms and toys for your new family member with all that money you save! Here is the link to see what shelters and rescue organizations are participating where you live!

And if you can't adopt, then share this event info on your social media channels--Facebook, Twitter 'n more by using the hashtag #ClearTheShelters. Want to see what people are Tweeting about right now? Click Here!

You might remember we helped spring a kitty from a shelter last fall and that made us feel sooooo good! We helped make a difference in that kitty's life and while we couldn't adopt him, we helped find him a forever home!

And today, Teri donated some coupons for free bags of kitty food that were in the BlogPaws Swag  Bag, so some kitties will be eating something yummy real soon!  We might not be able to adopt right now, but we can help in other ways.

We hope that this years Clear The Shelters Day sets a new record and we will be watching today to hear some good news for a change! We all could use more joy in our lives, and that goes double for those pets in shelters!

Wordless Wednesday, #BlogPaws Style!

Digging into the photo archives, Teri found this photo series she took of handsome Brighton way back in 2010...

Something so calming about gazing upon a cat at rest...
