Beer and Kittens event aims to increase cat adoptions

News

Beer and kittens don’t seem like a likely pair, but that was the scene tonight at Straight To Ale Brewing. 

Guests were allowed to pet kittens as they sipped a cold one, and it’s all for a good cause. More than 70 cats were there from various animal rescues in the area. Several of them got adopted with a special adoption fee exclusively for tonight’s event.     

“Shelters that have room for 30 cats often have 70-100 at a time and they just don’t have room for that, and if they’re not adopted they’re euthanized,” said  Alli Jones with A New Leash On Life 

A dollar from every beer sold tonight will go to help local rescues continue helping cats find homes.
