Free Cat Care Kit and Litter Assistance Available at Humane Society Tampa Bay
TAMPA - The recession hasn't just impacted people, but their pets are affected as well. According to the ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), more than 3 million cats and kittens end up in shelters each year. This year, even more cats are at risk due to the economic downturn.
In an effort to help keep cats in their loving homes, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay has teamed up with the ASPCA and the makers of Fresh Step litter and 9Lives cat food to offer a novel cat food and litter assistance program to cat owners most in need. The ASPCA Cat Assistance Program will run like a cat food and litter bank for thousands of cat owners across the U.S.
Tampa Cat Food and Litter Bank On Friday, November 6 from Noon to 5 p.m., cat owners in need of assistance can visit the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, 3607 N. Armenia Avenue in Tampa, and receive a free Cat Assistance Kit, compliments of the ASPCA and the makers of Fresh Step litter and 9Lives cat food, while supplies last. The
FREE kits will include a litter pan, litter scoop and cat toys along with free-product coupons for Fresh Step litter and 9Lives cat food. The Fresh Step coupons will provide up to 140,000 pounds of free Fresh Step litter and the 9Lives coupons will provide up to 31,500 pounds of free 9Lives cat food - all to support the ASPCA Cat Assistance Program. One free kit will be given per household, while supplies last.
At the event, volunteers at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay will be on hand to assemble the Cat Assistance Kits. In addition, Fresh Step and 9Lives will host an "Ask the Vet" session during the event. Dr. Terry Spencer will offer free, one-on-one cat care consultations from Noon to 2 p.m.
