New Canaan animal activist and business owner Cathy Kangas is particularly set on helping shelter dogs and cats find warm homes this winter. Potential pet owners whose heart strings are tugged by a shelter pet from Adopt-A-Dog in Armonk, N.Y., can bring their furry companions home free of charge with her newly launched freebie adoption drive, Home for the Holidays.
“My goal would be that we clear out the shelter and find these poor things wonderful homes,” Kangas said.
Her company, Prai Beauty, has committed to fronting the fees — $100 for cats, $200 for adult dogs and $300 for puppies — for all adoptions through Jan. 1. If Home for the Holidays is successful, Kangas said she hopes to extend program indefinitely.
