So Many Cats, NYC Giving Them Away Free
Sometimes I stop by a local shelter to visit and play with the cats. Today there were a lot of kittens available. Cages were set up in the halls because there was no space in the cat rooms. Summer is kitten season, and all over the country shelters are overwhelmed.
The Animal Care and Control (AC&C) of New York City is attempting to keep from becoming overcrowded by giving away cats for free. Until Labor Day,(September 7) just choose a cat over one year old, and you will receive a kitty that is vaccinated, neutered or spayed, microchipped, a visit with a participating vet, and a "Welcome Home" goodie bag, all for no cost.
The AC&C's goal is to not euthanize any healthy animals this year because of space restrictions.
