More than 300 cats currently call the Winnipeg Humane Society home and staff are doing everything in their power to get rid of as many as they can.

Between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. today, adult cats six months of age and older can be adopted for free. Kittens will be available for $75.

“Large intake numbers mean cramped cages and illness,” said WHS CEO Bill McDonald in a release. “…You can adopt a friend for life, for free.”

The WHS is hoping to move out 150 cats in the 12 hours the promotion runs. Adoptions includes feline leukaemia/FIV testing, spay and neuter surgery, tattoo, first vaccination, de-worming and six weeks of Pet Secure Insurance, and two-week health check.

The WHS hasn’t euthanized a cat for space since December 2010.

Smoke’n Bob’s cart will be at the Humane Society to provide food for those who come down.
