Many Stillwaters residents are pet owners and lovers – Mr. Blogger and myself included. This week I learned about a local resource for cat adoption and thought I would share. Pets provide a lot of comfort and companionship. Giving a shelter animal a home can be very rewarding. I know our last several cats have come from animal shelters and they have loved becoming a part of our family. Sadly, pets only live a limited number of years so next time you are ready to adopt, check out these two local sources:
The Lewis County Animal Shelter – see their website for information and photos of the cats and dogs available for adoption (click on “adopt a dog” or “adopt a cat” to see photos). For more information call: 740-1290.
The Cat’s Meow is the local Spay, Neuter & Adoption organization. See their website for information and photos of cats available (Click on “Adoptable Cats” at the top bar). This organization is a nonprofit with a focus on spaying and neutering feral cats. They also work with cat owners to spay and neuter pets to avoid future unwanted kittens. They operate a “No-kill” facility and welcome donations. For more information call 623-0820.
Stillwaters Estates policy on pets is to limit pets to two per household and they must be on a leash or in your house at all times.
