Thousands of cats get adopted from shelters each year. These cats have found their forever homes with loving families. Many times these families would love to celebrate their cat’s birthdays but are unsure of when their birthday actually is. That was what lead to Catober 1st being deemed as the universal birthday for shelter/adopted cats.
International Homeless Animals Day is a day to spread awareness on pet overpopulation. There is an incredible overpopulation of dogs and cats worldwide, which leads to so many dogs and cats becoming homeless. This day is celebrated on the 3rd Saturday of August each year.
Hi my name is Jack! I am estimated to be between 2 and 5 years old. I am an American Staffordshire Terrier Mix. I have been living at the Humane Society of St. Lucie County for almost a year now. My family gave up on me in September 2020. A request to my future family: I would really love a mini dog pool, I loooove the water. Could you please play fetch with me? It’s my favorite. I can’t wait to love on you and for all the hugs. I want all the attention I can get so I would prefer a home with no other animals. I also am a pretty big boy so I prefer older children in the home.
Hi everyone! My name is Lego. I am currently living in a foster home. I have been in and out of the shelter my entire life. Each time I was returned I was more heartbroken, I didn’t understand why I was brought back. The family that adopted me just couldn’t find time for me. My other family decided to move to a new home that didn’t allow dogs. I have been let down so many times and had started to lose hope, that’s when my shelter family decided to find me a foster home.
