Motley Zoo’s Executive Director Jme Thomas, with George Takei and Kitten Takei.


We try to create a message of positive community involvement, which is just one reason we seek out celebs and rock stars to pose for photos with our adoptable animals.

We think it communicates a message of support and celebration, and it advocates the idea that even though rescue is hard work, it can really fun, too! Plus, who doesn’t like kittens and puppies? 😉

During this year’s Seattle Pride celebration on Sunday, June 29, we were fortunate enough to do just that! We made special arrangements for a meet-n-greet with the legendary actor and activist George Takei (pronounced Tah-kay), who was this year’s Pride Grand Marshall.

As an avid community activist, he and his husband Brad Altman were very generous with their time, and our little kitten Takei was a total charmer. It was a crazy scene, but they were definitely smitten with kitten Takei’s sweet demeanor.

Big thanks to Seattle Pride in helping us arrange this amazing opportunity, and extra thanks to George and Brad for helping us raise awareness and supporting Motley Zoo!

Rock on!
