This Saturday, May 21, Purrfect Cat will maintain a booth at Burger & Brew Fest 2016. The event is hosted by Fremont Chamber of Commerce and celebrates—obviously, burgers and beer. The site explains it all better than I can.
We will be there to show off photos of our current foster kittens, explain our adoption process, and hopefully make more people aware of our low-cost spay and neuter program.
Since 2012, our Flagship has been a retail space in Newpark Mall. Purrfect Cat spent years selling low-cost vouchers and doing adoptions in corners of pet food stores and on tables temporarily set-up in public spaces; until the management team of Newpark Mall gave us a vacant store for a song. We spent two years downstairs by Sears, then we moved upstairs near Burlington, where we have remained since.
The store is ideal. We have come to see it as our home. But it’s not actually ours. And with regret, the mall needs that space to temporarily house another business while their store is being remodeled. There is a lot of activity going on at Newpark Mall at the moment; and as anyone who has ever renovated knows, everything takes more time and money than what you think it will.
This being the case, we’re not sure how long we may have to relocate. So the most logical short-term solution is to return to mobile adoption events. We have just worked out a deal to maintain our Newpark Mall hours (Friday 4 to 7, Saturday & Sunday 12 to 3) at Waggin’ Tails in Union City starting the first weekend in June. We will let you know of other locations and times when they become available.
In the meantime, please check in frequently here and on our facebook page for updates. This happens at the worst possible time for us, just as the spring kittens are becoming old enough to be adoptable, so we want to be sure that those looking to adopt can actually find us. Our last day at Newpark Mall will be Friday May 27.
