The Animal Foundation Offers Adult Cats at Deep Discount

The Animal Foundation Offers Adult Cats at Deep Discount

The Animal Foundation is celebrating Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month with a deep discount on adult cats.

The shelter is offering cats that are 1 year or older for a $30 adoption fee. That is $50 off the usual adoption price. The discount will be available through June 30. The shelter says it is easier to find homes for kittens, but it struggles to find homes for older cats. Right now, there are 99 cats available for adoption at The Animal Foundation and 69 of those are a 1 year or older.

The adoption fee also includes spay or neutering surgery, first round of vaccinations, a microchip, a five-pound bag of cat food, and a voucher for a complimentary wellness exam at a participating veterinary hospital.

The number of cats and kittens in the shelter increases in the summer as cats from litters born in the spring become old enough to wander and escape. They can also become too much for an owner to handle.
