Anderson Feline Survivors adoption event set for Saturday in Mauldin

Anderson Feline Survivors will be holding an adoption event in Mauldin on Saturday, July 12, their Facebook page reported today.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Anderson cats, these are cats trapped by Anderson County Animal Control beginning July 3. These cats were held at Anderson County PAWS until a better solution could be found.

That solution soon turned into a miracle when Mauldin business owner Milliken Vejay generously donated the use of a building to house the cats, many of whom are pregnant or have kittens.

Now some of the survivors from the farm are ready to go to their forever home. An adoption event is set for Saturday between 10:30 am and 3:30 pm at the Tractor & Supply located at 206 South Main Street in Mauldin.

Cats will also be available for adoption at the cat facility at 209 East Butler Road. The two events are only a mile apart, so you can easily check out both locations and pick out a kitty to take home.

There are several dozen cats and kittens now under the care of volunteers and rescue groups at the donated building, so please feel free to bring along a few cans of good quality cat food, litter or cleaning supplies to help out.

Gift cards for Petsmart are also welcome. To donate from the Anderson Feline Survivors Amazon Wishlist, click here.

This is a very special event, being that these cats are alive to even be offered up for adoption. So many died at the hands of Julianne Westberry. The farm cats fared better, as they were left to their own skills to survive.

For any of you who have never adopted a cat who has known what it's like to go to bed hungry at night, I can personally tell you it's a very rewarding experience.

Cats who have known hardship are very grateful. They have an inner voice that tells then what a special person you are for offering them a forever family.

The Anderson Feline Survivors are cats that will love you for opening your home. It's a special love every cat lover should know at least once in their lifetime.

Please share this event with friends in upstate South Carolina. You'll not only be helping one of the cats, you'll take a bit of the load off those caring for these cats.
