Cat Adoptions Triple At Riverside County Animal Shelter – KESQ Palm Springs

Drastically reduced licensing fees resulted in the adoptions of hundreds of abandoned and abused cats from Riverside County animal shelters in August, a county official said today.

The Department of Animal Services ran a “Five-Dollar Fuzz Ball” promotion last month, offering residents the opportunity to adopt a feline for $5 rather than the customary $45.

The result was 426 cat adoption, compared to 165 adoptions in August 2010, according to Animal Services spokesman John Welsh.
