A PAWsitively PURRfect Summer Promotion
If you are worried that you missed Kittypalooza, fear not! The Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS) announced today that all cat and kitten adoption fees will be reduced by 50% for the rest of the summer. The animal shelter on 549 Tenth Line has over 120 cats and kittens in their program and the phone is ringing off the hook.
“We are hoping to promote more adoptions in order to continue helping homeless cats in our community. This morning we received a call about 11 cats that were dumped on the side of the road near Woodford. We are doing our best to help, but we have to be mindful of our room and resources.” said Sonya Reichel, Executive Director for the GTHS.
The vast majority of cats entering the shelter are not fixed and therefore more than 50% of the females are pregnant. Last week, Emily, pictured above, was brought in by a gentleman that found her in his barn. It seemed apparent that she had been abandoned. On initial examination, nothing seemed out of the ordinary but after 24 hours she had such large amounts of milk production that it was very obvious she was nursing kittens! The gentleman ripped the barn apart trying to find them and after two days found Emily’s babies – Elm, Echo, Eden and Egypt! He rushed them to the GTHS animal shelter where Emily was grateful to have them back.
To continue helping cats like Emily, the GTHS is reducing all cat and kittens adoption fees by 50% until August 31st. This means that adult cats will be $50 and kittens will be $75 to adopt, which will include their spay/neuter, microchip, vet exam and parasite treatment.
In addition, the GTHS is continually grateful for community support. By joining the PAW monthly giving program or making a gift to the GTHS, you are ensuring that every homeless pet gets the second chance they deserve. Visit www.gths.ca/donate-now/ to help today and save a life.
