Burlington Animal Shelter lowers cat adoption fees

The Burlington Animal Shelter is hosting A Home for the Holidays, an event to promote cat adoption this holiday season.

Due to the growing number of cats and kittens at the Burlington Animal Shelter, select adult cat adoption fees have been reduced.

Adult cat adoptions are $34.60 including taxes and kitten adoptions are $91.92 including taxes.

The reduced fees continue until Dec.31.

In 2011, there were 218 cats adopted from the Burlington Animal Shelter. This year, 321 stray cats have entered the shelter and only 210 have been adopted.

Each cat adoption includes age-appropriate vaccines, deworming and de-fleaing, microchip, a bag of food, pet insurance for six weeks, complimentary vet exam and a cardboard carrier to go home.
