It happens this time of year: Suddenly the Bonnie Hays Small One of the great cats currently up for adoptionAnimal Shelter is bursting at the seams with kittens and cats. “We’ve reduced our adoption prices on cats and kittens so we can find new homes for these great pets as quickly as possible,” says Debbie Wood, manager of Animal Services for Washington County. While the shelter is full:

  • Adult cats (over one year): Now $10 (was $50)
  • Kittens (under one year): Now $40 (was $80)

All cats have been spayed or neutered, test negative for feline leukemia and FIV, are up-to-date on vaccines, and receive a free veterinary exam from local veterinarians.

“This is a great time to think of the joys of owning a cat. They are so underestimated as pets,” says Wood.
