Brevard Humane Society Hosts Kitty Cat Scamper Adoption Event

In celebration of National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, the Central Brevard Humane Society will be hosting the Kitty Cat Scamper Adoption Event, from June 16th through 30th.

Theresa Clifton, Executive Director of Brevard Humane Society outlines the Kitty Cat Scamper.

This event will be held at their Merritt Island Adoption Center and the Humane Society in Cocoa. Both facilities are currently “bursting at the seams” with adult cats and kittens that are looking for new and loving homes.

There’s a delightful twist to this event – your new “furry friend” (cat or kitten) gets to pick their own adoption fee. That’s right! Your new companion will be selecting their own fee from the official Kitty Cat Scamper Game Board. There are many options for them to choose ($25, $35, $45, $55 or FREE). Prior to adoption, all cats and kittens are spayed or neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. Adoption fee does not include county tag or rabies vaccination.

In this program; however, is a fusion of mindfulness practices today and yoga as it was taught in India 1600 years ago. The old way has never been more relevant than in the Age of Information, where attention spans are at an all-time low and stress is at an all-time high. In the last decade, researchers have discovered that mindfulness and meditation practices are revolutionary methods when it comes to disease prevention and proactive health.
