Each year, almost 900,000 cats are euthanized in shelters across the United States. At the same time, inhumane kitten mills churn out thousands of pure-bred kittens a year to be sold in pet shops and online.
Please don’t support kitten mills by purchasing a cat at a pet shop or over the internet. Save a life by adopting a cat or kitten. Learn more about the pet shop and kitten mill industry at www.caps-web.org.
Also, visit NBC4's Clear the Shelters to find a local animal shelter or nonprofit rescue organization to adopt a cat or kitten in dire need of a forever home.
