Potter League For Animals, will host a “Adopt Your Very Own MVP” event, a one-day-only Cat Adoption Special, on Tuesday , November 17th.

The first 10 cats – 2 years and older – will be offered at a $9.00 adoption fee. The standard adoption rate for a cat is usually $125.00.

Thanks to the generosity of Animal Planet and the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation the Potter League For Animals are able to offer these deeply discounted adoption fees.

The Potter League For Animals currently has 22 cats available for adoption, 15 of those are 2 years of age or older.

All standard adoption processes will be followed.

Cats available for adoption have all been examined by a veterinarian and are up to date on vaccinations appropriate for their age. All cats have been treated with Frontline flea treatment and have been microchipped. The adoption fee includes a cat safety collar, an I.D. tag, a certificate for an additional veterinarian exam and a cardboard carrier.

The Potter League For Animals is open 10am to 7pm on Tuesday and is located at 87 Oliphant Lane, Middletown.
