The New Braunfels Public Library will partner with the Humane Society of the New Braunfels Area to host the July 6 “Check out a cat for life” event in order to provide local residents an opportunity to adopt a feline friend into a “forever home,” according to a city press release.
The event will begin with cat-themed story time at 10:30 a.m. followed by a six-hour adoption window. Foster parents from the HSNBA will be on hand beginning at 11 a.m. with a number of kittens ready to be adopted.
Adoptions will continue until the library closes at 5 p.m.
“Pet ownership has so many benefits for families, their animals and the community,” Library Director Gretchen Pruett said. “The HSNBA does wonderful work in this community through education and outreach as well as caring for our community’s animal population. We support their mission and continue to partner with them annually to host a program that is fun and beneficial to all involved.”
Staff members and volunteers from the HSNBA will remain in the library for the duration of the event and will be able to answer any questions or concerns about pet ownership and the adoption process.
