Just five days after saying goodbye to around 100 cats or kittens, the Regina Humane Society has been over-run again with around 140 in their care at this moment.
As a result. they are offering free adoption for cats over the age of 6 months with kittens going for a low price of 50 dollars.
Humane Society spokesperson Bill Thorn says there is one reason for the fact so many cats are coming in which is many let their cat run free and many aren’t spaying or neutering that cat meaning the arrival of kittens.
Thorn says with so many cats in the shelter, it isn’t healthy for them as when it is full, if a cat comes in that is sick, it can spread quickly.
As is the case with other free adoption events, Thorn says you get free spay/neuter surgery, a complimentary pet exam and 30 days of pet insurance.
Thorn says the problem isn’t as critical when it comes to dogs, but there are many dogs at the shelter as well and they are running low on rawhides of all size. Anyone wanting to donate a rawhide no matter the size is asked to come to the society to drop them off.
