Community Concern for Cats joins
for FREE CAT ADOPTIONS!
Saturday, June 1, 12 noon – 5 pm
Sunday, June 2, 12 noon – 4 pm
Community Concern for Cats (CC4C) is participating in a gigantic weekend adoption event to find qualified homes for our many rescue cats and kittens. Free CC4C adoptions will be offered throughout the weekend at the following locations:
- Walnut Creek PETCO, 1301 S. California, Walnut Creek (Map)
- Pleasant Hill Pet Food Express, 2158 Contra Costa Blvd., Pleasant Hill (Map)
- Lafayette Pet Food Express, 3610 Mount Diablo Blvd., Lafayette (Map)
This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we will be featuring cats of all ages—senior cats, adults, kittens, even special needs cats that are looking for a great home. The goal of Maddie’s Fund® is to find loving homes for every cat and dog in Alameda, Contra Costa, and San Francisco County’s shelters and rescue groups. The event marks the largest collaboration of animal shelters and rescue groups in the three counties coming together for a two-day pet adoption event. Maddie’s Fund has set aside $4 million to provide shelters and rescue groups with an adoption stipend per pet adopted during the event. Stipends range from $500 to $ 2,000.*
Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days is being held to increase awareness of shelter animals, boost adoptions, and support the shelters and rescue organizations in the eight participating communities. The event honors the memory of the foundation’s namesake, a miniature schnauzer named Maddie.
* Maddie’s Fund will pay organizations $500 for each young and healthy animal, $1,000 for each adoption involving a dog or cat who is 7 years of age or older or who has been treated for one or more treatable medical conditions, and $2,000 for each adoption involving a dog or cat who is 7 years of age or older and who has been treated with one or more treatable medical conditions (list is available at http://adopt.maddiesfund.org).
