COURT HOUSE – Cape May County Freeholder Leonard Desiderio and Sheriff Gary Schaffer are encouraging the public to adopt a cat from the Cape May County Animal Shelter & Adoption Center during May and June and to also take advantage of the special promotions and reduced adoption fees. If you are interested in adopting a cat, now is the time.
The Animal Shelter has over 175 cats for you to choose from.
"June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month and Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center is hoping this promotion will increase cat adoptions plus make room for the influx of cats and kittens that inevitably arrive at the shelter in spring,” said Freeholder Desiderio.
Throughout the month of June the adoption fee for cats will be reduced by fifty-percent.
In addition to reduced adoption fees in June, the Shelter is offering an Early Bird Special this month. Through May 31, the adoption fee for all cats over one year old is $10.
“If you have been considering making a feline addition to your home, now is the time,” said Sheriff Gary Schaffer. “Unfortunately as kittens begin to arrive the adults are overlooked. Our goal is to encourage adoptions of older cats.”
All cat adoptions include: spay/neuter procedure, vaccinations, de-worming, flea control, microchipping, cat carrier, PetSmart coupons worth $160 and a free vet visit.
The Cape May County Animal Shelter & Adoption Center is located in the Crest Haven Complex at 110 Shelter Road in Cape May Court House (Exit 11 off the Garden State Parkway). The facility is open seven days a week for adoptions and visitors from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Also, cats from the Shelter are available for adoption at the PetSmart store in Rio Grande.
