Pets Kingdom to open adoption center – River Cities – MiamiHerald.com

Pets Kingdom located at 270 Westward Drive isn’t your traditional pet store. Soon, Pets Kingdom in conjunction with Caring About the Strays (CATS) will showcase a pet adoption center inside the store.

“The idea of opening an adoption center is a really good way to bring adoptable cats to the people and get them the exposure that gets them adopted,” said Executive Director Laney Silver of CATS. “I don’t have to spend a lot of money on marketing because people are already here.”

What sets this store apart from shelters is the environment. Silver plans on making the adoption center colorful and friendly. The center will be near the window so people walking by will see the cats in the center. The center will be designed with a double door for pet safety and accessorized with cat trees, toys and places to sit.

The cats and kittens will be brought to Pets Kingdom in the morning and stay until the store closes. Volunteers will be on hand to help find just the right kitten for you.
