seniorcatGive the gift of a forever home this holiday season. Adopt a Senior Kitty.
Come meet our great older kitties this Saturday, Nov. 6th from 12-2. There are many reasons to consider adopting a senior cat:
They are calm and less demanding
They are appreciative
Its not a 20-year commitment…but most will be around for a number of years and deserve a loving home!
It feels fantastic to give a homeless senior animal a wonderful home
Come meet them at PetMAC
4220 Fessenden St NW, WDC 20016
Homeward Trails currently has a waiting list of senior cats trying to get in to rescue. For any senior cat adopted we will reach out to another in need.
Adopt one cat and save the life of two!
