National Kitten Day is July 10! Here’s Where To Get a Furry Friend


Especially if you’re working from home at your Beacon apartment, there’s nothing like a furry friend to keep you company – especially if it’s one that doesn’t require walks or midnight cries to be let outside! That’s where cats come in, which can be your pet and pal without too much work.

On National Kitten Day on July 10, finally get that kitten you’ve been thinking about by first heading to one of these local animal shelters. Choose either a laid-back cat, a playful cat or a loving cat to fit your lifestyle.

Liberty Humane Society, located at 235 Jersey City Blvd, Jersey City which is six minutes from your Beacon apartment, cares for, treats and finds homes for thousands of animals every year. Rehoming animals who have nowhere else to go is one of the most urgent aspects of their mission, but their long-term goal is to build a community in which those services are no longer needed.

All animals receive a medical assessment and vaccinations upon intake. After a behavioral assessment, adoptable animals move into main shelter housing where they will stay until adopted or transferred. All animals are spayed or neutered and microchipped prior to adoption.

Final Hope Animal Rescue, located at 6 Congress St. Jersey City which is 10 minutes from your Beacon apartment, is a recognized non-profit organization that strives to provide help to abandoned, neglected and sick cats.

At the heart of their organization is a mission to give temporary shelter, socialization, medical care and, of course, unconditional love to homeless animals until they can be placed in loving and secure forever homes.
