Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in San Jose – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.
Locally, all four Human Society Silicon Valley adoption centers—in Milpitas, San Jose, Sunnyvale and Mountain View—will participate from 10am to 6pm the day of the event. For the addresses of those locations, . You may be looking at the options, and wondering what the difference is between buying a cat or kitten you see advertised for sale in the San Jose newspaper, for instance, and adopting a cat or kitten from a shelter. One main difference is the feeling you get from knowing your choice is actually saving a life. When you adopt a cat or kitten from a San Jose-area shelter or rescue group, you’ll not only save the life of the cat you’ll call your new best friend, but you’ll be helping another cat by creating an open space at the shelter. And your new cat will show you vast amounts of gratitude every day! You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a San Jose pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in San Jose is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a San Jose animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.All HSSV locations, including the Milpitas Animal Community Center and the Mountain View, Sunnyvale and West San Jose Neighborhood Adoption Centers, will be closed all day on Monday, 5/29/17 (Memorial Day).Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) is committed to building a community where every pet has a home and operates four adoption locations throughout Silicon Valley.
