June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month

Whispers enjoying a big stretch. She is available for adoption at our shelter

Across the U.S. in spring and early summer, the cat population explodes with feral and unaltered companion cats giving birth to thousands of kittens for whom there are no homes. Many of these unwanted cats and kittens live out their lives in feral colonies. The more fortunate of these unwanted cats and kittens end up in shelters. Only the luckiest of all are adopted into loving homes. Here are some ways you can help:

Consider adopting a cat (or better yet, a pair of cats) from a shelter or rescue group. Feline Rescue cats are spayed or neutered, FIV/FeLV tested, vaccinated, and vet checked. Our adoption fee is a fraction of the cost of having these services performed independently. And when you adopt one of our cats, you create a spot for a new homeless cat to enter our doors. If you cannot adopt a cat at this time, consider sponsoring one.

Encourage your friends and neighbors to spay and neuter their cats. Spread the word that unaltered animals result in heartache for their off-spring. Also, please consider making a donation to our Spay/Neuter Outreach program to help those with the greatest need and prevent future homeless cats.

Join the fight! Feline Rescue is looking for volunteers to help foster mother cats and their kittens, pregnant cats, elderly, or special needs cats; to tend cats at our shelter and to help with our spay/neuter outreach program. We would love your help!
