Tipper the kitten

Tipper is just one of many, many felines available for adoption through the Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance. (Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance / May 31, 2012)

If you're thinking you need a little more meow in your life, consider taking advantage of the Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance's Baltimore 500 promotion. A joint effort of the Maryland SPCA, Baltimore Humane Society and Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, the promotion aims to find new homes for 500 homeless felines during the month of June. And apparently, the shelters are full of adoptees of all ages, sizes and adorable fur colors. 

What this means to you: No adoption fees in June. The cat or kitten you choose will already be spayed/neutered and vaccinated, too. You'll also get a free wellness exam for the pet at the Cat Hospital of Towson and a goody bag.

This is the 4th year of The Baltimore 500: A Race to Save Lives. Last June, 580 cats and kittens were adopted.
