Petfinder.com will be celebrating their 15th birthday from July 15-17 during their Big Birthday Adoption Weekend. In conjunction with that, they are aiming for 15,000 adoptions over the course of that weekend.
In case, you don’t know what Petfinder.com is, they are an online resource that rescues and shelters can use to post adoptable animals that can be viewed nationwide.
Over the past 15 years, Petfinder.com has worked with rescues and shelters to adopt more than 17 million pets into loving homes. If you visit the Birthday page for Petfinder, you can find local shelters and rescues that are participating in the event, see adoptable pets, and sign a birthday card with a photo of your pet. Visit their birthday page HERE.
Black and Orange Cat Foundation will be doing their best to help Petfinder.com reach their goal of 15,000 adoptions. So please take a look at their adoptable kitties and plan to take one home over that weekend: www.bandocats.petfinder.com
Rhatima, or Queen Rainey as she has been nicknamed, is the featured B and O kitty for the Birthday celebration. Black and Orange would LOVE to find her forever home during this celebration. To see photos of Rhatima and read her story, visit her on Petfinder.com or the B and O blog.
Black and Orange Cat Foundation will be holding their 5th Annual Garage sale over that weekend, too, from Thursday, July 14 to Sunday, July 17. The garage sale always coincides with the Miami Valley Steam Threshers Association Show at Pastime Park in Plain City. This is the 62nd year for the Steam Show and they will be featuring the Cockshut/Co-op Tractors. To see a full schedule of Steam Show events, go HERE.
As most of you know, Black and Orange’s board member, Carol Gaul, lives at 176 Anderson Avenue, which abuts Pastime Park and makes it a perfect place to hold the garage sale. Carol and her husband, Chuck, lost their home and their kitties last August to a house fire. But they have emerged from the ashes, rebuilt, found new kitties to love, and are planning on having the sale again this year.
Black and Orange is still collecting donations for the sale. If you have anything you would like to donate, please call Carol at 614-419-1553.
The garage sale will begin each day at 9 am (maybe earlier if Carol has her coffee) and will last until the final buyer leaves for the day. There is always a wide mixture of things and new stuff arrives daily. So come, shop early, and shop often.
With Carol and Chuck back home, Black and Orange Cat Foundation has a lot to celebrate, so please join all of us over this festive weekend!
