In our home, our furry animals are just as much a part of our family as the humans. We have had our dog, Buster for over 12 years now which means that as long as my kids have been alive, they have always had him by their side. Buster very much likes being the only pet with hair in our home, but I'm sure with four kids, eventually, a cat will find it's way into our home and into our hearts. No matter what city or town you live in, somewhere near you is a shelter full of cats and kittens looking for their forever family. If you are considering bringing a new pet in your home, consider adopting one from your local shelter. I've always loved the softness of Scotties tissues, and now they've given me new reason to continue to support their product!
SCOTTIES FACIAL TISSUES SPONSORS CAT & KITTEN ADOPTIONS IN JUNE WITH THEIR NATIONAL “BRING HOME A BOX OF SOFTNESS” CAMPAIGNAs Part of National Cat Adoption Month Select Rescue Organizations Along The East Coast Will Offer Sponsored Adoptions To Get These Felines In Their Forever Homes.
Burlington, MA (May 5, 2015) – For the entire month of June, National Cat Adoption Month Scotties Facial Tissues will sponsor select cat and kitten adoptions at three rescue organizations along the east coast.

Each organization is receiving $5,000 to support the cause of rehoming cats and kittens. Initiated by the tissue company in 2014, this ongoing effort to increase the number cats and kittens going to good homes has been a key focus for the brand. All adopted cats and kittens are spayed / neutered and are up to date on all shots and vaccinations.
How Can You Be Part Of Giving Homeless Cat's A Better Life?Scotties hopes to rally support for this cause and to rehome approximately 100 – 150 cats nationally. Caring owners looking to “bring home a box” and fill their home with softness can visit one of the participating rescue organizations for more information on shelter location, hours, and descriptions of adoptable cats. If you don't live near any of these East Coast shelters, there's still ways that you can help!
