Operation Kindness Celebrates National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month

Operation Kindness, North Texas’ original and largest no-kill animal shelter, celebrates Adopt a Shelter Cat Month by bringing their Kitten Snugglepalooza sessions to companies across Dallas-Fort Worth throughout the month of June.

With a minimum donation of $1000, DFW companies can schedule their own Kitten Snugglepalooza and Operation Kindness will do the rest! Each Kitten Snugglepalooza lasts two hours, and Operation Kindness’ staff will bring six to eight kittens to an enclosed area of the company where employees can greet and snuggle with the kittens. All funds raised through the Kitten Snugglepalooza will go toward paying for medical care of the animals and for food and supplies to refill the shelter’s Pet Food Pantry.

Kitten season runs from March until October and on average the shelter spends over $1 million in medical costs for the pets which includes cat and kitten care. The care provided by Operation Kindness includes veterinary costs such as vaccines, spay/neuter surgeries and medicine, and food for the cats and kittens.

“At this moment, we have already rescued 150 cats and kittens this year and anticipate rescuing 600 or more by the time kitten season ends,” said Operation Kindness CEO Jim Hanophy.

In addition, Operation Kindness hosts Work Paw Playdate, which brings puppies and dogs to businesses for a minimum $1000 donation.
