Wake SPCA hosting Valentine's weekend speed dating event
Posted February 12, 2015
Raleigh, N.C. — Families looking to adopt cats from the SPCA of Wake County will get to meet them in a new way over the Valentine's Day weekend.
For two days, the adoption center on Petfinder Lane in southeast Raleigh will host its first speed-dating event to help match adoptable cats with feline-friendly families.
Prospective adopters will fill out a personality match-making questionnaire created based on each adoptable cat's individual personality. Questions range from a cat's movie preferences to its initial reaction to a fresh can of tuna.
SPCA staff will match prospective parents with cat and give them a Valentine's card with the name, photo and bio of an adoptable cat whose personality matches.
"This is a fun, light-hearted approach to finding love and saving lives this Valentine's Day," Darci VanderSlik, spokesperson for the SPCA, said in a statement. "Right now the SPCA has over 30 cats waiting for someone to love them the rest of their lives. We hope to find the perfect match for as many cats as possible."
The Valentine's adoption festivities will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. For more information, call the adoption center at 919-772-2326 or visit www.spcawake.org.
