Kittens from the Georgetown Animal Shelter will take over the lobby of Georgetown Public Library on Aug. 8-9 with the goal of playing, snuggling and purring their way into a new family. Kittens will be available for adoption from the library, 402 W. Eighth St., from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day.
Visitors may cuddle, play with and adopt kittens at the library. Adoption fees are $35 per kitten during the event, and kittens will be able to leave directly from the event. Cardboard carriers will be provided.
Georgetown Animal Shelter is the municipal animal shelter for the City of Georgetown and takes in all stray and surrendered animals from within the city limits. Even as the city grows exponentially, the shelter has maintained a save rate of 90 percent or more for the past four years, classifying the shelter as a no-kill shelter.
The animal shelter currently has a large number of kittens and cats, and staff hope the event at the library will help them find new homes.
The Georgetown Animal Shelter is located at 110 W.L. Walden Drive. For more information about the shelter, visit pets.georgetown.org.
