We are happy to announce that two of the three kittens featured on the last Adopt a Pet segment were adopted. Annie was adopted by Carmen Jackson of Baton Rouge, and the male kitten, Kiki, was adopted last night by Kristin Cryer and her daughter Victoria Gullett.
“We watched [the pet adoption] on television before, and I felt so sorry for them,” Jackson, a mother of four, said when discussing her reason for adopting Annie. “The kids really wanted a new pet, and we have room for one right now, so I called and told them I wanted one that was fluffy and cute. Annie reminded me of a cat that I used to have a long time ago, so I really wanted her.”
Sadly, approximately ten thousand animals in East Baton Rouge Parish alone are euthanized every year. That’s the reason why Kristin Cryer wanted to adopt from Lori Darensbourg with the Northside Humane Society
“There are just too many kittens and cats out there that need a good home,” Cryer explained when discussing her reason for going through the Humane Society. “The stuff they do at the humane society, I have to give it to them, it’s amazing what they have to do to keep these cats from getting euthanized.”
One kitten, Lilly, is still in need of a good home. Along with Annie and Kiki, Lilly was found stuffed in a box in a parking lot. Lilly is spayed and up-to-date on shots. She has also been tested for feline leukemia.
If you would like to adopt Lilly, send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call Lori directly at 225.964.6992.
WVLA NBC33 News will present a new animal every week that is in need of your help in our running series, Adopt a Friend.
