If you have a pet cat at home, chances are good that you did not seek him out, he/she found you. Most cats choose their owners, not the other way around. They show up at our homes as pathetic scrawny strays and hang around long enough to win our hearts.
For the many that do not find homes, life is often short and cruel. For the homeless cats and kittens that end up in shelters, the wait time for a new home is often months, even years. The Humane Society of Adams County’s Animal Shelter in West Union has 36 cats and kittens waiting for new families. All have already been fully vetted.
A little-known secret in the pet world is that adopting a dog or cat from a shelter is almost always cheaper than getting a “free” puppy or kitten. The Shelter cats and kittens in West Union are already spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, tested for diseases, and litterbox trained. It would cost at least $104 to have all of that done at a veterinarian’s office. The Animal Shelter in West Union normally charges $50 for kittens and $30 for adult cats, but they are currently having a special of just $5 per cat or kitten.
