Cat cafe opening this summer, creating jobs for workers with disabilities
ZILLAH, Wash.- One local non-profit is launching a coffee shop that will be ran by adults who have disabilities, and also take in rescue cats.
Volunteers at Community Seeds are partnering with the Yakima Humane Society other pet rescue groups to fill Calico Cat Cafe with cats.
Organizers say adults with development disabilities have a smaller opportunity for employment, and creating these jobs helps them get an advantage in the workforce.
The cafe will open this August, and will be getting around ten cats. All cats will be available for adoption.
