Willamette Humane Society Reopens Kitten-Kaboodle at Salem Center Mall
(Salem, OR) – Willamette Humane Society (WHS) is thrilled to announce the return of its popular Kitten Adoption store, Kitten-Kaboodle, at Salem Center Mall. First opened in 2015, the store helped increase adoptions at Willamette Humane Society to save more lives.Learn About Kitten-Kaboodle Ask About Kitten Kaboodle Call 503-385-6808
Kitten-Kaboodle is located on the ground level of the Salem Center by the Liberty and Chemeketa Street Entrance, right by Chico’s and Baskin-Robbins. Open hours are 10 am – 2 pm on Wednesdays (coinciding with the hours of the Wednesday Market right next to the store on Chemeketa St), and 12 – 6 pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The most exciting part of Kitten-Kaboodle is that everyone can enjoy visiting with the kittens, whether or not they intend to adopt.
For a suggested donation of $5, you and your family can “check out” kittens and take them to the “Kitten Library,” a cozy, enclosed nook with couches, cat trees, and cat toys in the back of the store.
In its 2015 season, 219 kittens and cats were adopted from the store. WHS hopes to build on this success to adopt out even more animals through the Salem Center adoption outlet this year by opening for an additional day.
Kitten-Kaboodle is part of Willamette Humane Society’s strategy to save an additional 328 cats in the community this year as part of the national Million Cat Challenge campaign.
“Willamette Humane Society is thinking outside the kennel to save lives by expanding off-site adoptions through Kitten-Kaboodle, implementing programs such as intake by appointment, improving cat housing in the shelter through Project Re-Mew, continuing to offer our free Spay-a-Stray Trap Neuter Return program, and offering our free Barn Cat Adoption Promotion for working cats,” said BJ Andersen, Executive Director of Willamette Humane Society.
Thank you to the community for their support of adoption and shelter pets by visiting the store this summer.
