Since it’s inception, A Life to Live has worked to save the lives of homeless cats and dogs placed in kill shelters — an initiative they will promote with a fun and enjoyable event this weekend.
A Life to Live’s first Kitten Palooza will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, at St. John Catholic Church, 800 W. Baker Rd.
“This Saturday at Kitten Palooza, our goal is to bring the community together for a fun and exciting event, celebrating our lifesaving mission in Baytown,” Magan Gonzales, co-founder and program director of A Life to Live, said. “Visitors can enjoy shopping from several different vendor booths, including Ya’lls Paws Holistic, Emmy’s Treasures, Cat Tail Toys, PB&J Tasty Treats, and much more. The community is encouraged to bring the family along, including furry friends for a fun-filled day.”
The organization’s biggest feline-themed adoption event will also spotlight cats and kittens saved from Baytown Animal Control, and will have more than 75 adoptable cats and kittens available for the public to meet and adopt.
Furthermore, the event will have raffles, silent auctions, food trucks and other fun activities.
A Life to Live has been a no-kill leader in animal welfare in Baytown since 2014.
To date, the non-profit organization saved more than 650 cats in Baytown through foster, adoption and shelter-neuter-return programs.
This week alone, Gonzales said they saved 20 cats and kittens from the shelter who were out of time due to space limitations.
“Progress can sometimes be slow to see at first because funding limits the number of cats we’re able to provide these services to,” Gonzales said. “However, with the help of a recent grant, we will be able to save nearly every single cat at risk of euthanasia at Baytown Animal Control. With more support from the community, better educational programs around spay/neuter, and affordable options for vet care in Baytown, we would see an even bigger impact in the future.”
A Life to Live is accepting sponsorships for medical care of cats and kittens, kitten care kit adopters, marketing sponsors, and more for the Kitten Palooza.
