In honor of this month’s National Adopt-A-Shelter Cat Month, Methuen-based MSPCA Small
Animal Shelter at Nevins Farm and the Acton location of “Especially for Pets” are collaborating to
offer a full day of fun and cat adoption opportunities on Saturday, June 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
at Especially for Pets in Acton.

The day of festivities will feature cats and kittens of all ages available for adoption, as well as a
myriad of interesting cat facts and important information on proper feline care. The store will
showcase a storyboard, highlighting special cats that have been adopted and their unique stories,
particularly from the Acton area.


New adoptive families will receive a special goodie bag in honor of their new feline friend. As
always, adopted pets (and their owners) will receive a 10 percent discount at the store on all
purchases valid for one month after adoption.

In addition to adoption activities, the event will also include face painting, a special raffle,
balloons, and more. Last year, the efforts of this off-site adoption program resulted in roughly 30
cats finding loving adoptive homes. The organization of this event was a team effort between staff
at the MSPCA in Methuen and Amy Lord, Manager of Especially for Pets.

“We have had an outstanding number of adoptions over the past season,” said Lord. “On this day,
we want to thank our customers who have adopted cats from the MSPCA and hopefully adopt out a
record number of cats and kittens.”

For questions or directions please contact Especially for Pets at (978) 264-4444 or visit their Web
