EMMAUS, Pa. – March 29, 2023- Purr Haus, a one-of-a-kind boutique carrying “The Best Stuff for Cats and the People Who Love Them,” will welcome several “unusual cats” for an adoption event on Saturday, April 1., 2:30 to 4:00 p.m.

The strange-looking “cats” are seeking homes through Starting Over Animal Rescue one of several local rescue organizations that team with Purr Haus to find adopters. Purr Haus owner Laurie Mason Schroeder said she was happy to welcome the animals, even though they’re not the store’s typical visitors.

“Cats are usually sleek and quiet,” she noted. “These ones tend to wag their tails a lot, bark and even slobber. But they’re really cute.”

Visitors to the shop during SOAR’s visit can take a chance at winning a $25 Purr Haus gift card by donating a bag of pet food (Blue Buffalo chicken and rice for dogs or Optimum from Pet Supplies Plus of any flavor are the preferred brands however any donation is welcome!) The winner will be drawn at the end of the event.

Purr Haus is located at 27 S. 7th Street in Emmaus, one block off Chestnut Street, behind CVS. The shop holds adoption events every Saturday and Sunday. To date, 72 cats have found their forever homes after visiting Purr Haus.

Starting Over Animal Rescue facilitates high quality affordable spay/neuter surgeries for feral, stray, and house pets and provides shelter to abused, neglected, and abandoned animals.
