Wilton is home to Animals in Distress, a volunteer run, donation-based, no kill shelter. Their mission is to find forever homes for cats that have been displaced. They’re one of hundreds of shelters across the country taking part in an effort tomorrow, Saturday Aug. 15, called “Clear the Shelters.” This nationwide push to place pets in forever homes has been organized in partnership with NBC-owned television stations–here in CT, it’s in cooperation with NBC Connecticut.
The participating shelters–including Animals in Distress (AID)–have agreed to cut the cost of adoption for the one-day event. On Saturday, AID has reduced adoption fees to $60 for adult cats and $75 for kittens.
“We really hope to have lots of cats and kittens adopted this weekend. By adopting you save two lives. The one you adopt and the one we are able to rescue because we have room to take them in,” AID has posted on its Facebook page. “We have kittens but don’t forget our older cats ages 1-16, some waiting over two years for a home! They would make a wonderful addition to your family.”
AID will be hosting the event from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday. They are located at 238 Danbury Rd., in the Town Hall complex, near the Wilton Police Station. For more information visit their website or Facebook page.
