“Summer is an exceptionally difficult time for shelters. There are literally thousands of cats and kittens needing homes, and many organizations such as ours have very limited space,” said Michelle Lenz, animal care manager at NAHS. “We have an adoption room full of kittens, plus many more in our foster homes and on our waiting list. We have no doubt that the current economy has affected our adoptions, but hopefully Feline Frenzy will encourage those thinking about adopting a cat or kitten to actually pursue it.
“Adult cats are often overlooked by visitors if there are kittens available. One of the great things about adult cats is that their personalities are already formed. They can be a great addition to a family, and they’ll thank you every day for the new life they’ve been given,” continued Ms. Lenz.
At NAHS, all adult cats and kittens have received an initial vet exam, age-appropriate vaccinations, and a microchip; they have been tested for FeLV/FIV and are spayed or neutered before going home.
