Ginger and Junebug.

Ginger and Junebug were part of a litter of kittens rescued by the Humane Society early in the summer.  They were so identical in appearance that their foster mom had to put kerchiefs on them to tell them apart.  All of their brothers and sisters have found homes now, but Ginger and Junebug are still waiting.  They are very happy and sweet, and love sleeping in your lap or snuggling in bed with you.   They like other cats and love to play with each other.  They are very gentle and loving and would be good with children, other cats or dogs.  The Humane Society is especially anxious to find homes for them because their foster mom has to leave soon to rejoin her husband in the military who is coming home from Afghanistan and planning to meet her and the rest of his family in Texas.

Ginger and Junebug, along with many cats and kittens of all shapes, sizes, colors, characteristics and personalities will be available for adoption on Saturday, September 6th, at the Humane Society’s Adoption Day, from 11 A.M to 3 P.M at the Tractor Supply Company, 104 East, Oswego, New York (located in the Price Chopper Plaza).  There are short-haired and long haired kittens, thin elegant kittens, chunky short kittens, calicos, tigers, tabbies, some with extra toes, and some with green eyes.  Some of the kittens available for adoption are a little older, five to seven months.   There will also be several dogs and puppies for potential adopters to meet.  Every pet adopted from the Humane Society is eligible for 30 days of free pet health care insurance from sheltercare.com.

Prospective owners will have the opportunity to choose and pick up their new pet after references have been checked.  Those adopters who are interested in going home with one of these pets should bring veterinary references and, if they are renters, bring written consent from their landlord in order to take the pet home.  They should also bring a sturdy cat carrier.  The adoption fee is $75 for kittens, $50 for older cats and $150 for puppies. Such fees cover a portion of the veterinary expenses that the Humane Society incurs.  All animals have been spayed or neutered (babies will be spayed or neutered before they are released for final adoption) and each animal is current with shots and has also been checked for ear mites and parasites.  Cats and kittens all have also been tested for feline leukemia and are litter trained.

All of these animals have been rescued by the Humane Society, sometimes from horrendous conditions.  They are now living in private foster homes and are therefore well socialized.  Foster families have the opportunity to report how well they get along with other cats, dogs and children.
