Go For The Gold, Adopt A Summer Olympicat

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) - The Summer Olympics are just over a month away, and the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) is getting into the spirit by hosting its very own Summer Olympicats Adoption Event.

It's also a celebration of June, the official Adopt a Shelter Cat month, with cats such as Bianca (pictured) ready and waiting for a forever home. The Summer Olympicats Adoption Event headlines this important time in the feline calendar, and runs throughout June, with adoption fees waived on all cats ages two and older.

If you're a prospective adopter, first-time cat owner, current cat owner, or an animal lover in general, you're invited to meet the world-class "cathletes" at the shelter. The AWLA staff is available to help adopters select the right winning cats for their homes.

The adoptable cats include medal-winners in the De-Cat-Alon, High Jump, Scratch & Stretch, Cat-Napping, Synchronized Purring, Rhythmic Gymnastics, and other Olympicat Events.

The Vola Lawson Animal Shelter is located at 4101 Eisenhower Avenue in Alexandria, VA. The shelter is open for adoptions and animal viewing from 1 p.m.-8 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and from noon-5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Potential adopters can view all adoptable cats (and other pets) online. Click here to visit www.AlexandriaAnimals.org or call 703.746.4774 for more information.
