Sat, Mar 16, 12 – 1 PM Leash Walking at Cat Depot, 2542 17th Street, Sarasota. Cat Depot visitors can learn techniques on how to walk adoptable Cat Depot cats on a leash and harness to provide the cats with much needed physical and mental stimulation.
The program is designed to teach volunteers, adopters and our guests the basic skills to safely introduce cats and kittens to walking on a harness.
In the shelter environment, they try to provide as much stimulation for the cats and kittens as possible to reduce stress and boredom. Teaching cats and kittens to walk on a leash not only provides stimulation, it improves social skills and increases their ability to adapt to new environments. It can also bring attention to some cats that normally do not stand out in a large group, increasing their chances of being adopted.
Leash and harness sets are also available in the Cat Depot Supply and Gift Store. If you are interested in attending, you must RSVP to Constance by emailing her at ConstanceP@catdepot.org.
