Looking for a way to celebrate our feline friends in July? Here are some fun August 2019 cat events.
Tuesday, August 6: Tiny But Mighty
Kitten Lady Hannah Shaw continues to change and save the lives of unweaned kittens with the release of Tiny But Mighty: Kitten Lady’s Guide to Saving the Most Vulnerable Felines. This must-read for cat lovers tells us about the dangers these wee ones face and how Hannah overcomes them, plus how you can, too. The book also includes tender personal rescue stories, sweet kitten photos and helpful instructional guides. Published by Plume.
Saturday, August 17: Clear the Shelters
Find your new best friend during NBC- and Telemundo-owned stations’ fifth annual Clear the Shelters pet adoption campaign. Today, the stations will partner with hundreds of animal shelters/rescues in the U.S. and Puerto Rico to help families find and adopt a new pet – and give pets a second chance at life. Shelters and rescues will reduce or even waive pet adoption fees. Since 2015, NBC- and Telemundo-owned stations’ Clear the Shelters campaign has helped a quarter million pets find new homes. Find participating shelter/rescues near you at cleartheshelters.com.
