Dozens of kittens find their forever homes in Langley

Organizers of the first Kitten Palooza say it was a purr-fect day.

This lovable kitten Ori was the only kitten not to get adopted at the first Kitten Palooza adoption day on June 27 in Langley.

Kitten Palooza was a huge success with hundreds visiting the Langley animal shelter and more than two dozen kittens being adopted on Saturday, June 27.

The Patti Dale Animal Shelter in Langley adopted out 23 kittens and one adult cat that day.

“We have only one adoptable kitten left,” said LAPS animal care manager Jayne Nelson who organized Langley’s first Kitten Palooza. That one lone kitten is Ori, a tuxedo with a lovable personality.

“We also took many applications for kittens not yet available – that means we have whole litters of kittens that already have great homes waiting for them once they are spayed and neutered.”

Well Seasoned owner and Township counsellor Angie Quaale and her partner David sold hot dogs and water by donation and raised over $300 for LAPS. They actually sold out of hot dogs.

“All and all a fantastically successful day,” said Nelson.

The kitten population this year has exploded all across Metro Vancouver, with kittens coming in early this season, said Nelson.

Before this adoption day, LAPS was full with 100 kittens, most at homes of foster parents.

The SPCA also said its kitten population has exploded.
