Local pet shelter waives adoption fees on National Kitten Day


Adoption fees for all kittens will be waived on Sunday at the Best Friends Lifesaving Center.

BENTONVILLE, Ark. – Best Friends Rescue Center (BFLC) is celebrating National Kitten Day this Sunday, July 10 by waiving adoption fees at their center located at 210 Prairie Lane in Bentonville.

BFLC needs the most help as kitten season is in place. Kitten season is the time of year when unspayed cats have most of their kittens. It reaches its peak in summer and generally extends from May to November. Newborn kittens are among the highest risk animals entering shelters according to BFLC.

BFLC says an estimated 355,000 dogs and cats were killed in shelters in 2021 simply because they didn’t have safe places to call home. Almost 70% of them were cats and kittens.

If you would like to adopt a kitten, you can visit the Best Friends Rescue Center where adoption fees for all kittens will be waived on Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.

Adoption fees for all kittens will be waived on Sundays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

All animals are fixed, vaccinated and microchipped. You can view them online by clicking here.
