Statement issued by Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control:
It’s a Feline Frenzy Adoption at Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control just in time to celebrate June Adopt a Cat Month. Hundreds of adorable, adoptable cats and kittens enter the city shelter during spring and summer months. Feline Frenzy will (do its) best to place as many healthy, vaccinated, spayed and neutered cats as possible back into the community and into loving homes.
To ensure the program’s success, all feline adoptions will be subsidized through a special Animal Care & Control Commission Grant to allow the normal $65 cat adoption fee to be lowered to $10 during the June Feline Frenzy promotion.
According to ACC spokesperson, “We are doing our best to save more lives while easing the up front expenses of adding a pet to the family. We encourage the community to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity made possible through this special grant.”
Included in each adoption is the video, Training Your Adopted Cat to help families learn the responsible care needs of cats throughout their lives. The shelter will evaluate the program’s success and hopes to be able to extend the offer beyond June as funding permits.
Adopt-A-Cat Month® was created by American Humane in an effort to promote cat and kitten adoptions. Adopt-A-Cat Month is held annually in June, when shelters around the country are inundated with litters of kittens in desperate need of loving homes. The event encourages cat adoptions from shelters, promotes the benefits of owning a cat and informs the public about how to care for their pets responsibly.
