“Pop-up” Kitten Adoption Event At Scottsdale Quarter

kittyIn late spring and early summer, animal shelters are flooded with cuteness, as cats give birth to litters of kittens.

The Arizona Animal Welfare League & Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (AAWL & SPCA) is introducing a novel way to find homes for these little bundles of fun and cuteness – kitten pop-ups.

Modeled after the fast growing retail trend of pop-up shops, which use unleased commercial space to open a temporary store selling everything from art and fashion to food and tech gadgets, AAWL & SPCA will open its first kitten pop-up at Scottsdale Quarter, 15037 North Scottsdale Road, in North Scottsdale, at Urban Outfitters. The event will be held Saturday, June 20, and Sunday, June 21, from 12-6p.

Adoption fees will be $75 per kitten, or adopt two kittens for $125, so they’ll each have a playmate.

“I don’t know of another shelter that has done a pop-up adoption event like this,” says Whitney Fletcher, Director of Volunteers & Special Events for the state’s oldest and largest no-kill shelter. “The Scottsdale Quarter has been amazing to work with, and we are delighted to have them as a sponsor for our first kitten pop-up.”

“Most importantly, the kitten pop-up is going to find homes for lots of sweet, adorable kitties rescued by our shelter,” says Fletcher.

Future kitten pop-up adoption events will be announced on AAWL & SPCA’s Facebook page (Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA) and on Twitter @aawlphx. For more information about AAWL & SPCA, go to www.aawl.org or call 602.273.6852.
