All we want for Christmas is a forever home

Thanksgiving is only 2 days away. And Black Friday is only 3 days away. In all the hustle and bustle of the turkey and football and shopping, please take a moment to think about the animals in the shelters.

Who can resist this sweet face? Sandi would love to have a forever home without other cats to bother her.
And let's face it, what would be a better Christmas gift to yourself and your family than a new pet? Think of the unconditional love and the warm fuzzy hugs. Just think of the joy you will bring to that animal's life and to yours.

Beautiful Bobby is leery of strangers, especially men, but he has plenty of love to give if you just have a little patience.
It has been a hard year for adoptions here in Southern Utah and most of the shelters are full. The Ivins Animal Shelter and Adoption Center - the only no-kill city shelter in Utah and the place where I get my foster kitties - is offering exceptional deals for the holidays. The goal is to find each and every one of the animals a forever home by Christmas.

Handsome Boots loves snuggling with other cats and with people. 
As part of the "Forever Home for Christmas" deal, all dog adoptions are half off. That is only $25 to bring home man's - and woman's - best friend. The cats are an even better deal. All adult cats older than one year are FREE!!! And kittens younger than one year are only $5. How can you beat that?

How could anyone say no to sweet little Mouse? She gets along great with other cats and she adores people.
There are currently 27 dogs and cats listed on the shelter's PetFinder page and there are more at the shelter that haven't been posted yet. You can get more info by calling the shelter - the number is listed to the left under my foster cats - or you can contact Inkas - Ivins No Kill Animal Supporters. Of course, if you want info on my foster kitties, you can contact me directly through this blog or through the Kate's Cats Facebook page.

Mustache here is one of the many other cats available at the Ivins Animal Shelter. Isn't he gorgeous? 
If for whatever reason you can't adopt a pet for the holidays, think about donating to your local shelter or a rescue group. The Santa Paws Drive is a great project to donate to - see the link on the right - or you can donate to Alley Cat Allies - also to the right - or Best Friends Animal Society - you guessed it, also on the right.

If we work together we really can make it a wonderful Christmas for all the animals.
