Adopt a cat for free at 'Free Feline Friday'
MENANDS -- The Humane Society is holding an event to help dozens of cats find their forever homes!
Today is Free Feline Friday at the Menands shelter, which means every cat 6 months and older are free to adopt! Kittens up to 6 months old will be $25.
If you can't make it to Menands, you can stop by the Society's three satellite locations: the PetSmart stores in Glenmont and Latham and the Petco in Clifton Park.
Every cat ready for adoption has been spayed or neutered, vaccinated for distemper and rabies, tested for feline leukemia, de-wormed, and treated with flea and tick preventative. All animals are eligible for 30 days of pet insurance
"Over 75 cats and kittens found new homes during our 4-day Feline Fest and we were absolutely delighted with response from our community," stated MHHS Executive Director Brad Shear. "However, as of today, we still have 336 cats and kittens in our care. They are here in Menands, at our three satellite locations and in foster care. At this time last year, we were caring for 251 cats and kittens. That means we are looking at a 33% increase. We are dedicated to giving each and every feline the very best care possible and that means finding new homes for them as quickly as possible. We are still in "kitten season" so more cats and kittens will be coming in tomorrow, the next day and for the rest of the summer. Anyone looking for a pet should check our website to see who is available and ready to go to a new home. It's updated instantly."
