CATS AND KITTENS UP FOR ADOPTION AT TOMS RIVER
ADOPTION FAIR, SATURDAY, AUGUST 1
Prizes, Trap-Neuter-Return demos and more, part of Alley Cat Allies’ Atlantic City

BETHESDA — Alley Cat Allies, the national advocate for stray and feral cats, announced an
adoption and outreach fair to be held August 1 at PETCO, 1331 Hooper Avenue, Toms River, NJ.
Visitors can meet cats and kittens up for adoption and talk to counselors about bringing home a
new pet.

The adoption fair is part of Alley Cat Allies’ longstanding Boardwalk Cats program. As part of
the Trap-Neuter-Return program officially sanctioned by the city and carried out by Alley Cat
Allies and volunteers, feral cats who live at the boardwalk are humanely trapped, neutered, and
vaccinated before being returned to their outdoor homes, where they receive regular food and
water. Adoptable cats and young kittens are placed into foster programs until they can be adopted
into permanent homes.

In addition to the adoption fair, visitors interested in feral cat care can view humane-trapping
demonstrations and pick up materials about Trap-Neuter-Return. Early birds can enter a raffle to
win prizes.

WHAT: Alley Cat Allies Adoption and Outreach Fair
WHERE: PETCO, 1331 Hooper Avenue, Toms River, NJ.
WHEN: Saturday, August 1, 2009 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
