Adopt the Internet Day



Hi, it's me Yoko today.  Since I am the only shelter cat in our bunch (Mom rescued the rest of us as strays or ferals) I am hosting the Adopt the Internet Day.

In honor of their 15th birthday, Petfinder is asking people everywhere to pledge to spread the word online about adoptable pets on March 15, 2011.  Please join us -

  • Add a badge to your blog 
  • Take the pledge to tell just one person about Petfinder adoptions and have a chance at winning a Pet Hair Eraser Vacuum by Bissell
  • Caption a Petfinder photo and be featured on ICanHazCheezerburger
  • Update your status on Facebook with a pic of a pet in need of a home from Petfinder with a link to their info
  • Join in on Twitter

All this info and more is on their Petfinder Adopt the Internet Day page here.

As for us, we are featuring our sweet Avon from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue of Asheville, NC who is listed on Petfinder.com.

Avon in her foster home.

She was rescued as an abused mother about to give birth to six kittens.  All her kittens have found homes but Avon still has not found a forever home.  She is a sweet, cuddly smallish tuxedo kitty, about a year old who loves dogs and lots of attention from humans. She is being fostered until they can find a forever home for her and her foster mom's phone number is 828 778-3011.


If you want to know more about Avon check out her Petfinder info here.

More than 320,000 dogs and cats are waiting on Petfinder.com for their forever homes.  Let's spread the word to one and all!

We sure hope someone will come along for Avon. She is so pretty.
Great post.
Little Bit is letting me pat her now but on her terms. MOL She only lets me do it while she is under the bed but she does come out. We are making progress.

How could anyone abuse a beauty like Avon?
*sigh*
We are glad she is being fostered and purr deeply that forever home is soon to come.

Avon sure is beautiful, and she sounds like a real sweetie! We can't understand why she hasn't been adopted yet. We are glad she is in foster home, but we are purring and praying that she finds a forever home real soon. We will post her again of facebook, too!
