DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - It's Cyber Monday and many will be crossing items off their Christmas shopping list with the click of a button.
While you're surfing the web, a percentage of your shopping dollars could go toward a local non-profit that saves animals' lives every day.
"Christmas is so busy here at Kitty Kottage because a lot of people want kittens as Christmas gifts,” said adoption coordinator Mallory Busby.
This time of year is hectic for the Kottage, especially with the change in weather.
"A lot of kittens will get stuck up in cars, especially with their mom is trying to find a warm place to stay,” added Busby. “Even when you're driving, the kittens can fall out of cars, especially orphans this time of year."
Each kitten has a story and the non-profit is almost at capacity. But no kitten is too small, too injured, or too sick to try to save.
"Our goal is to reach a fully vetted kitten that is ready and healthy to go home for the holidays,” added owner Glenda Dennis.
That's why the non-profit needs your help to continue their mission. Anyone shopping through Amazon can go to www.smile.amazon.com. 0.5% of the price of eligible Amazon Smile purchases will go to the charitable organization you choose. .
"If you're making big purchases for Christmas, even just that small portion is huge for us, especially if just a dozen people do it, it really adds up,” said Busby.
"However small the donations are, they add up quickly for us and we apply those donations directly to our vet bills,” commented Dennis.
This way, families can have a happy, healthy pet underneath their Christmas tree.
Dennis says between 80-90% of their adoptions come through Facebook. Just this past weekend, 11 kittens were adopted.
