Thinking of adopting a cat this holiday season?
If so, there are cats of all sizes, colors, breeds and temperament at the New Albany-Floyd County Animal Shelter. There are so many cats that 12 are being given away as part of the “Twelve Strays of Christmas” campaign while the regular adoption fee is only $20 for a cat.
“We’re desperate. We need to place some of these cats,” said Theresa Stilger, animal care coordinator at the shelter. “We have some of the sweetest cats that we’ve ever had here. And we’ve had some for a year.”
The shelter lowered its cat adoption fee to $20 six months ago to try and thin out the population.
