14 Elderly Santa Barbara Felines Find New Homes at Close of National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month

The Santa Barbara Humane Society is pleased to announce the success of its first adopt-a-senior-cat campaign during June’s National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month. 

The month-long campaign, “Fall in Love with the Senior Class of 2015,” featured a special adoption fee of just $7 for cats 7 years or older. A total of 14 cats were adopted, including their eldest cat, a 15-year-old cat named Cleo who had been living at the shelter for 341 days.

“Animals of every age deserve a loving home, “said Peggy Langle, Santa Barbara Humane Society executive director. “We are grateful to all of our adopters and especially applaud the individuals and families who are offering these senior pets a loving home for their golden years.”

Fifteen-year-old Cleo was adopted from the Santa Barbara Humane Society during National Adopt a Shelter Cat month.

Cleo’s adopting family was also a participant in the Humane Society’s innovative Shelter-at-Home foster program.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
