Join us for Rocket City Kittypalooza 2022!

Cattyshack, Inc. is inviting the cat loving community to shop their way through the historic grounds of Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment, at 2211 Seminole Drive, Huntsville, AL 35805, on May 7, 2022 from 11am-9pm. The Kittypalooza Event Itinerary is below…

Our reason for this event is to spread awareness about the significance of spaying and neutering pets, barn cats, strays and ferals. As our shelters and rescues fill up every year around this time, lovingly called “Kitten Season”, it’s not just about the expenses we incur. It’s also about the physical exhaustion, mental fatigue, depression and the sense of overwhelming helplessness that rescuers fall victim to. The cat over-population problem, and the mental health of rescuers, could be drastically alleviated if cats were spayed and neutered before they impregnate each other. Most rescues would LOVE to be able to help pet-owners, concerned citizens, and good Samaritans with spay/neuter before the litters start accumulating! We all strive to educate the community about the health benefits of sterilizing cats, spay/neuter assistance programs, trap neuter return (TNR) programs, and the need for foster homes.
