BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A local couple is sponsoring cat adoptions this weekend in honor of their son.

Molly Hauck and her husband are sponsoring the adoption of 12 cats from Cat Haven on Saturday, Jan. 14 in honor of their son, Felix, who would have turned one year old on Thursday. A dozen felines will be available on the “1st Annual Felix Hauck Memorial Adoption Day.”

The duo is going to foot the bill which they estimate to be around $1,600 for six kittens and six cats.

The Hauck’s are cat owners having adopted Bean and Peebert from Cat Haven in 2017. The couple credits their cats for helping them get through what has been a difficult year.

Molly said, “It was really important for us to find a way to memorialize Felix in a way that would impact other families in a positive way.”

Cat Haven is located at 11130 N. Harrells Ferry Road.
