Day 1

Day one was already an amazing experience, thank you so much West Michigan! 

We had 10 adoptions! Including some of our most beloved FIV+ cats (more on our FIV+ cats in a later post). Our lucky cats were Iris, Fitz, Bob, Francesca, Checkers, Chess, Runt, Niko, Noodles, Dusty, and Gremlin! WOW! What a busy day! 


This event makes our entire F2F Volunteers’ dedication shine through. We are an entire volunteer ran organization. Our volunteers are committed to every cat and person that comes into our shelter. Our dream is for every single one of  our cats to find a home they can call their own and find a family they can be with for the rest of their life. 


This event is especially appreciated in this difficult year. Budgets are tighter than ever! Having a reduced fee event allows families to experience the unconditional love of a cat. Did you know that cats are good for your heart health and reduce your anxiety? One study found that over 10 year period cat owners were 30% less likely to die of a heart attack or stroke. 


We are expecting Day 2 to be better than ever! We cannot wait to see you at the event and we cannot wait for you to meet your perfect match!
