A new adoption center for cats will be opened on Sunday from a $1.6 million dollar gift from the Joanie
Bernard Foundation, Inc.
The Ohio Alleycat Resource
& Spay/Neuter Clinic will celebrate its Grand Opening on Sunday, August 18,
12:00-5:00 p.m. in Madisonville (5619 Orlando Place, 45227).
Morgan will be among a few of the speakers that will help celebrate the occasion.
The Joanie Bernard Home for
Cats nearly doubles the organization's current adoption space, with
approximately 4,800 square feet of cat housing and supporting work areas. It
was designed to serve as a welcoming place to visit and adopt cats: cats will
reside in community rooms, each having custom-built play equipment, and
screened-in porches for mild weather. Housing will also be dedicated for
special-needs cats - those that are elderly, or have a medical condition. The
shelter's Kitten Room is anticipated to be a favorite stop for visitors.
Ohio Alleycat Resource finds
homes for approximately 300 cats annually, and the organization anticipates a
significant increase in that number as a result of the new facility.
