An abundance of adoptable cats has the Winnipeg Humane Society at maximum capacity.
To make room, the animal shelter is waiving adoption fees for all cat with upper respiratory infections, June 1-4.
If not enough feline friends find loving homes, there’s a chance some could be euthanized.
“Our community has asked us to do everything we can to improve the live outcomes for cats. We have implemented new strategies that are making a significant difference, but now urgently need people to adopt these cats immediately,” said WHS CEO Javier Schwersensky.
Available felines for adoption either had or were exposed to upper respiratory infection and must be housed separately from the general population of cats. There are currently 142 cats with URI at the WHS.
Should any URI symptoms occur in the first three months of adoption, the Humane Society will provide a health check.
