The Winnipeg Humane Society is once again giving away free cats in an effort to make room at their shelter.
More than 240 cats and kittens are currently in the WHS’ care, and about 100 more arrive every week.
As Andy Hill would say, “Looks like someone left the kitty-making machine on overnight.”
On Friday, November 22, all cats four months and older can be adopted for free. Kittens under four months will be $50 to adopt. The normal adoption fee for kittens is $179.
“The cat overpopulation crisis is ongoing and not enough cats are getting spayed or neutered,” said Judy Dean, WHS adoptions manager. “We are seeing far too many stray cats and kittens come to the Winnipeg Humane Society. This promotion will help these cats find loving homes.”
The WHS sees an increase in felines as the cold weather hits, when many stray or wandering cats end up at the shelter.
Potential adopters need to bring ID with current address and can expect the process to take about 40 minutes. All cats adopted from the WHS are spayed/neutered, have a tattoo ID, first vaccination, 30-day Petplan health insurance and a two-week health check.
