Speed Dating: Not Just for Humans

Sept. 11, 2008



Men and women looking for loving, caring relationships are invited to the world’s first-ever speed dating event for … cats!

“It works for people who want to meet people, so we thought it would be a natural for people who want to meet cats,” said Susan Mentley, OHS operations director. There will be wine and hors d'oeuvres served at the Sept. 30 event, with human guests spending five minutes with 10 to 15 different cats over the course of the evening.

OHS, which has over 100 cats available for adoptions, will select feline dating candidates who vary in personality, age, and breed to insure there is a perfect match for all guests. Guests will receive care packages with the adoption of any cat during the event.

And unlike traditional speed dating events—there are no worries here. All OHS cats are spayed/neutered and vaccinated. They come with a microchip ID tag, one month of health insurance, and much more.

Speed dating guests can meet Portland’s very own celebrity, “that crazy cat guy” Greg Glover of 94/7 fm. OHS Interpersonal relationship experts (otherwise know as adoption counselors) will be on hand to make sure the speed dating experience is a happy one.

It all happens on Tuesday, Sept. 30, from 5 - 8 pm at OHS, 1067 NE Columbia Blvd., Portland, OR 97211.

No admissions fee or RSVP required. But please, only those people interested in committing to a caring, compassionate relationship should attend!
