Fort Lauderdale, FL -- June was “National Adopt a Cat Month” and the Humane Society of Broward County (HSBC) waived the $85 adoption fee for all felines over six months of age and reduced the fee for felines under six months to just $50. As a result, more than 350 felines found homes! The promotion has now been extended through the end of October 2011 to encourage more families to adopt a feline. All kitties will be spayed or neutered before they leave the shelter; given preliminary vaccinations; feline leukemia test; microchip and registration; a cardboard carrier to go home in; a 14 day health care plan courtesy of VCA Animal Hospital and a bag of Purina ONE food. Most importantly, you are getting a friend for life! All adopters must meet adoption criteria and are limited to two felines for this promotion. Adopted felines must leave with a safety collar on.
During the summer, shelters all across the country are inundated with kittens and the adult cats are often overlooked. By waiving the adoption fee for adult felines the HSBC hopes to entice potential adopters to give the mature kitties a chance too.
The Humane Society of Broward County is located at 2070 Griffin Road and adoption hours are Monday - Saturday 10 - 6:30 and Sunday 10 - 5:30.
