BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) — While CrossFit and cats might seem like an unlikely duo, Panama City CrossFit was able to help cats and kittens find their forever homes at an adoption event this morning.

Bay County Animal Services hosted a “Caturday” Adoption event to kick off their partnership with Panama City CrossFit.

The idea for the partnership came after they noticed many people couldn’t afford to take their sick pets to the vet.

Panama City CrossFit wanted to help and they are setting up a donation fund to try and help out.

Bay County Animal Services Division Manager Kathy Beatson said Saturday’s event was a way to come back into the community and hopes their partnership will help people with their pet’s medical expenses.

“Getting our trolley back because we haven’t been able to take it out because of the pandemic and everything going on, Beatson said. “So we want to get back into the community with it and show off all the animals that we have because we have a lot of great animals all of the time.”

They brought nine cats to the event and within the first two hours, two cats had already been adopted.
