  • Petco Adoption Center Celebrates First Anniversary The Cat House on the Kings is proud to celebrate the first anniversary of the Petco Adoption Center in Fresno. In 2013 the adoption center placed close to 600 cats and kittens into loving furever homes. On February 22nd, a celebration was held at the Petco on Blackstone Ave. Scores of fans and supporters turned out for the festivities. Channel 47s Kathryn Herr and reporter Justin Sacher, an avid TNRer, came out to cover the event. Fresno City Councilmember Clint Olivier was also on hand for the celebration. Mr. Olivier presented Tammy and Lynea with a certificate from the City of Fresno in recognition of the Petco Adoption Centers hard work, dedication and efforts to find homes for cats, and in promoting awareness and education.

    I asked Tammy Barker, who spearheaded the adoption center project, about how she felt about the first birthday of the Cat Houses Petco Adoption Center. What I love best about our Petco Adoption Center is two things. First, it really helps when adopters have a wonderful place to sit, interact, meet and really bond with the cat or kitten that they might be interested in adopting. This truly helps people find just the right pet for their particular family explained Tammy. Secondly, I love the fact that we have a safe place where we can showcase some of the fabulous adults cats. Adult cats are often overlooked when people only want kittens. Sometimes people come to the

    adoption center thinking they want a kitten. Then they simply fall in love with one of our adult cats and end up taking one of them home instead. That is just priceless.

    Heather Garvey, adoption coordinator, had this to say; The Adoption Center has opened doors for animals to get a quality forever home. It gives the Cat House on the Kings the opportunity to reach out to our community, to educate about pet overpopulation and the need to spay and neuter. To me, said Heather, that means everything.

    Thanks goes out to Petco manager, Carl Giorgini, and the Petco staff for everything they do for us! The Cat House would also like to thank Petco corporate for the goodie bags, the balloons and their endless support. We are so grateful to Natural Balance Pet Foods and Wellness Pet Foods for supplying our party with a sumptuous spread of yummy food and beverages. In addition they both provided samples of their products for the goodie bags. Dug-Out Cookies deserves a home-run cheer for bringing an assortment of their delicious cookies. A special shout out goes to Karen Rae for providing the to-die-for cupcakes. We would be remiss if we didnt mention how grateful we are to everyone who volunteered to set up, clean up and help out during the event.

    We are extremely grateful and humbled by all the people who joined us to help the Cat House celebrate this milestone and for all the pet food donations that will help feed the hungry pets in Fresno County.

    Canadian Television Comes to The Cat HouseA private Canadian television production company, ChicTV Productions, recently visited the Cat House on the Kings. Filmmakers Michel and Andre spent four days filming every aspect of the Cat House operations and doing interviews. It is amusing to note that some of us were initially reduced to gig-gly little girls by their sexy French accents. Michel and Andre were funny, entertaining and a real pleasure to work with. Based in Montreal, ChicTv is a family based company owned by Marc-Andre Chicoine. Mr. Chicoine is also the companys content creator and producer. ChicTV is producing a series of 24 documentary portraits on exceptionally inspiring people from around the world. The show is expected to air in Quebec around April...
