Off the Page with Extol takes a timeout to talk to our March Sports cover referee, Eric Ballenger. During the NCAA Basketball tournament, the refs took a beating. How does our favorite ref see the call?
Basketball is always the topic of conversation in March. This year, basketball is also a hot topic at the New Albany Animal Shelter along with kitten season. Soon, the shelter will be overrun with moms and babies. While the shelter does not euthanize due to space, it can easily become crowded and overwhelming for these already stressed animals. Stressed mothers can have a harder time keeping their little ones healthy while they grow.
To help promote adoptions and reduce overcrowding, the Shelter is embracing basketball madness and holding our March Madness Feline Frenzy. This promotion will be held March 20th through April 1st.
Eight cats have been selected as part of the Elite 8. As adoptions continue the remaining cats will progress to the Feline 4 and the Final 2. All eight will automatically have their adoption fees cut in half! Those cats that have made it to the Final 2 will have their fees completely waived. The last cat remaining on the brackets, the Champion, will have their adoption fee waived, as well as receive a Champion Cat Basket! Cats that weigh over 4 pounds that did not make it in to the Feline Frenzy Brackets can still “Shoot for Savings”! Adopters will get one chance to shoot a basket and receive half off of their adoption fee!
All cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, Felv/FIV tested negative, and current on yearly vaccinations. Some of these cats have already been waiting for many months for their forever home. These sponsored adoption fees are made possible by the Floyd County Animal Rescue League.
Come see what all the hoopla is about at the Shelter and meet our furry friends who need a home. Shoot for a winning cause!
Over three thousand animals a year come through the doors to the New Albany Floyd County Animal Shelter seeking homes. Together, we can make a difference!
