Adopting a cat at Emporia’s Animal Shelter won’t cost local residents a penny the rest of this year.
Emporia leaders for the fourth time have extended the free cat giveaway at the shelter. Anyone adopting a cat in 2011 won’t have to pay the $20 adoption fee.
Residents may adopt a cat or dog at the shelter, 1216 Hatcher St., from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays.
The Emporia City Commission stopped short of dropping the adoption fee indefinitely in part because of concerns over the cost of spaying and neutering.
