OctoPurr Promotion at IndyHumane

Humane Society of Indianapolis

October 7, 2011 – Indianapolis, Indiana. The Humane Society of Indianapolis currently has dozens of adult cats (age 3 and over) on the adoption floor and many more in back still waiting for a spot on the floor, putting the shelter at capacity for cats. To help move animals from the shelter to homes, IndyHumane’s OctoPurr Promotion is asking people that want to help, but may not be able to adopt, to sponsor an adult cat by paying the $75 adoption fee. Individuals interested in adopting a cat that has been sponsored will only need to pay a $20 hold fee and have a24-hour waiting period.

“We need to find these cats homes and we hope this will help inspire people that want to adopt,” said Christine Jeschke, Chief Operations Officer. “This special promotion connects adopters with donors in a very unique way by allowing people to pay it forward and help save the life of a shelter cat.”
