15 year old Cleo was adopted from the Santa Barbara Humane Society during National Adopt a Shelter Cat month.
Santa Barbara, CA, July 27, 2015 – The Santa Barbara Humane Society is pleased to announce the success of their first Adopt a Senior Cat Campaign during June’s National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month. The month-long campaign, “Fall in Love with the Senior Class of 2015,” featured a special adoption fee of just $7 for cats seven years or older. A total of 14 cats were adopted, including their eldest cat, a 15-year-old cat named Cleo who had been living at the shelter for 341 days.
“Animals of every age deserve a loving home, “said Peggy Langle, Santa Barbara Humane Society Executive Director. “We are grateful to all of our adopters, and especially applaud the individuals and families who are offering these senior pets a loving home for their golden years.”
Cleo’s adopting family was also a participant in the Humane Society’s innovative Shelter-at-Home foster program.
