Cat adoption fees lowered – Middle Township Gazette

Reduced cat adoption fees are planned at the Cape May County Animal Shelter & Adoption Center through June.

The Animal Shelter has more than 175 cats up for adoption.

 

“June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month and Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoptions Center is hoping this promotion will increase cat adoptions plus make room for the influx of cats and kittens that inevitably arrive at the shelter in spring,” said Freeholder Len Desiderio.

Throughout June, the adoption fee for cats will be reduced by half.

This month, the shelter is offering an early bird special. Through May 31, adoption fees for cats over 1 years old is $10.

“If you have been considering making a feline addition to your home, now is the time,” said Sheriff Gary Schaffer. “Unfortunately as kittens begin to arrive the adults are overlooked. Our goal is to encourage adoptions of older cats.”

Cat adoptions include spay/neuter procedure, vaccinations, de-worming, flea control, microchipping, cat carrier, PetSmart coupons worth $160 and a free vet visit.

The Cape May County Animal Shelter & Adoption Center is in the Crest Haven Complex at 110 Shelter Road in Cape May Court House.

The facility is open seven days a week for adoptions and visitors from noon to 4 p.m. Also, cats from the shelter are available for adoption at the PetSmart store in Rio Grande.
