OSWEGO, NY – “It’s not a horror movie, it’s a sad fact. We are inundated with homeless kittens every spring, and this year is no different,” according to Diane Broadwell, animal services chair of the Humane Society.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â “They are adorable and a lot of fun, but I am fostering seven kittens right now, all of our other foster homes are bursting at the seams, and we need to find them homes!”
Many kittens of all shapes, sizes, colors, characteristicsÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â and personalities will be available for adoption on Saturday, May 31 , at the Humane Society’s “Hordes of Kittens” Adoption Day, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Tractor Supply Company, 104 East (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.
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 and $70 for older cats.
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.
