Animal Shelter Society has too many felines

Bubba needs a home.

The gray-and-white cat, who has one folded ear and looks as if he has a bit of Scottish Fold, chatters as he rubs against those coming in the door of The Animal Shelter Society.

“He’s been here since August,” said Sarah Orwig, the shelter’s rescue coordinator. “We think he’s about 3 or 5 years old and is a real lover. He’d make someone a great pet.”

The shelter has had to cut its cat adoption fees from $50 per cat to $10 because of overcrowding. The fee includes spaying or neutering, vaccines, deworming, FIV and leukemia testing and for a microchip to be placed in the cat.

“Right now the fee just covers the microchip,” said Larry Hostetler, executive director for the shelter. “It really costs the shelter about $200 per cat to keep. But we’ve got so many now, we have to do something.”

The shelter has more than 200 cats and kittens, all waiting patiently for a good home.
