Universal Birthday for Shelter Cats – October 1st
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.
Catober 1st is an opportunity to look into the world of these wonderful animals who are waiting for a family. This day we can return the unconditional love and adoration they give us and help find them a home that is full of the love they deserve.
Ways to Celebrate:
1. Donate Your Time
We could always use help from volunteers. Contact the shelter to find out how you could volunteer and help impact the lives of the thousands of cats and dogs that come through our doors every year! Apply Now!
2. Do Something Special for Your Adopted Fur Baby
Bake them their own treats, or stop at your local pet store and get them some cat nip. Maybe you could spoil them with a new bed or toy.
3. Write a Birthday Card to a Shelter Cat
We love to receive cards of encouragement or love for our shelter cats. We would love to showcase them and hang them on their condos! Visit our website to meet our residents and write them a special card!

4. Sponsor a Shelter Cat
We can always use cat toys, supplies, treats, food, catnip, and much more to help us tend to cats in need. If you are interested in sponsoring a cat, donate needed supplies for your cat of choice. Visit our Amazon wishlist and put the cat’s name on the gift receipt and we will make sure your cat of choice gets whatever you donated! We will also let you know when your cat gets adopted.
Another way to sponsor would be to donate their adoption fee. It will help their chances of being adopted!
