A partnership to help cats find their forever home


Did you need a kitty to brighten your home? The Washington Humane Society and Annie’s Hardware has you covered. The next event is scheduled for Sunday, June 28th, from 12pm - 3pm. 

Near the end of the summer in 2012, Yolanda Thomas was at Annie's Hardware when she met Anne Strom, owner of the store, and her dog. Yolanda had just left the Washington Humane Society (WHS) shelter and was wearing her WHS t-shirt.  After talking for a bit, Anne offered to host an adoption event and the rest is, as they say, a successful history.

Thanks to the support from Anne and her staff, the adoption event has been held almost every month since that first summer 3 years ago. Approximately twenty cats and kittens have found permanent loving homes, and they’ve been able to increase donations (both monetary and supplies) for WHS.

In fact, the first kitten adopted at the very first event was taken home by the roommate of one of Anne's employees.

And if you're interested, there are many ways to donate to support the Washington Humane Society.
