In honor of Adopt-A-Cat Month, the Kansas City Pet Project at the City of Kansas City, Mo., Animal Shelter will waive all adoption fees on adult cats (six months and older) from June 1-30. Cat adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, FIV/FeLV testing, deworming and age-appropriate vaccinations – a $400 value.
During summer months, adult cats are often overlooked in shelters, with families opting to adopt kittens instead. By removing the cost barrier to obtaining a cat from the shelter, KC Pet Project hopes to reduce the number of unaltered and unvaccinated cats in the community.
“With so many wonderful cats available, this is a great time to adopt,” said Tori Fugate, donor engagement and community events coordinator at Kansas City Pet Project.
