The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals (the Alliance) will launch its very first adoption event for cats seven years and older on Sunday, May 4, 2014. Dubbed “Strictly Seniors,” the event is intended to bring attention to the hundreds of senior cats who need loving, forever homes.

The Alliance is partnering with Frankie’s Fund for Feline Care & Rescue, a rescue group focusing exclusively on older cats, and Cauz for Pawz Thrift Store, whose focus is to raise money for animal rescue. The Cauz for Pawz Thrift Store will host the event from 12:00–4:00 p.m.

Kittens often get all the attention in shelters, while the older cats are overlooked. However, seniors cats make wonderful pets for people of all ages. One benefit is that their personality is fully developed. Therefore, a potential adopter can be confident of what behavior to expect from their new feline friend. Senior cats make great lap cats for doting pet parents. Frankie's Fund makes a special effort to help senior cats find their perfect match.

Consider visiting the event this weekend and meeting the available cats. You just might find the cat of your dreams.

The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals works with more than 150 partner rescue groups and shelters to offer programs and services that save the lives of NYC’s homeless animals. The Alliance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
