The Winnipeg Humane Society is bursting at the seams and desperately needs to find loving homes for 500 more cats and dogs.

“We need to get them into homes, and get them out of here, as soon as we can. I cannot stress this enough,” said Bill McDonald, WHS Executive Director, “We’ve even reduced our price to make it that much more desirable.”

By the end of September, the WHS had reached 5,980 incoming cats and dogs.

In an attempt to open up space all cats over 6 months old will be $25, and dogs over 6 months old will be $75, October 16-18. In addition, kittens six months old and younger will be $25 off. This includes feline leukemia/FIV testing, spay and neuter surgery, tattoo, first vaccination, de-worming, 6 weeks of Pet Secure Insurance, and two-week health check.

The WHS is also in urgent need of wet cat and dog food, along with monetary donations. Items can be dropped off at 45 Hurst Way.
