Humane Society needs homes for cats, kittens | News
AUGUSTA, ME. - The Kennebec Valley Humane Society (KVHS) is currently seeing an unprecedented number of cats and kittens in the local shelter. Currently, KVHS has over 160 cats and kittens under their care in the shelter, satellite locations, or with foster families. With more cats and kittens arriving at the shelter every day the need for loving adoptive homes is critical.
"Our shelter is full of these wonderful animals looking for a second chance" said Hillary Roberts, KVHS Executive Director. "In a number of days we have literally seen our shelter fill up and our resources deplete as we continue our mission to care for them. It's now that we need community members to come forward and help provide loving homes for these animals in need."
KVHS will be waiving the fee for all cats over 6 months old and offering 2 for 1 kitten adoptions with any donation of cat litter or kitten food, two items in high demand at the shelter. This promotion begins on Thursday, July 12th and lasts until Sunday, July 15th. All cats and kittens are spayed/neutered and up to date on routine vaccinations.
"Our programs caring for cats and kittens KVHS are working, but with more animals coming in every day it is not enough to just care for these animals, we have an urgent need to also find loving homes for them. Foster families have helped to care for litters of kittens until they are old enough to be adopted and our staff works every day to make the best possible matches for adopters and animals. Now we really need our community to open their homes by adopting these animals. Our job is to save the lives of these animals, and we need help from families and individuals willing to join us in our mission" said Roberts.
