Strictly for felines, the mall adoption center is the result of a collaboration between mall management, the SPCA and generous donors who made it possible for the center to stay open through Dec. 31 (it was originally scheduled to close on Sept. 30).
The adoption center opened in August, thanks in large part to funding from TalkingPhoneBook.com president and CEO Richard Lewis and his wife Lisa. The couple were deeply impacted by an August 8 column by Buffalo News writer Donn Esmonde about the sad realities of cat overpopulation in Erie County, and decided to fund a program to encourage end-of-summer cat adoptions.
Since its inception, the storefront location has helped almost 400 cats find new homes.
