Cat adoption center needs help with mall closing


Some cuddly cats and kittens have no idea that a mall closing is about to bring upheaval to their lives.

But those who care for the furry friends are already dealing with the ramifications of the closing of the Metcalf South shopping center. The Purrfect Pet Adoption Center is having to move by the end of the month to the Great Mall of the Great Plains in Olathe.

But the group needs some help with their new quarters and getting the kitties transferred.

"The problem is it's just one big space. We need rooms built to house the adults and keep them healthy," said adoption center director Elaine Doran.

The nonprofit needs money for materials and volunteers who are handy and willing to get their paws dirty to get the walls up and the rooms ready for adoption.

Kymberli Boyd, who has been volunteering at the no-kill shelter for two years, said she's nervous about all the upheaval but hoping for the best.

Both Doran and Boyd said they hope to get all the playful and loyal felines adopted before the move because they don't do well with significant changes to their environment. The center has about 30 cats that need forever homes.
