home-catOnce again, Fulton County Animal Services (FCAS) is overrun with cats and is waiving the cat and kitten adoption fee to encourage adoptions.

During the month of November, the public can adopt a cat for no fee. Potential adopters will still be screened to ensure the animals are being placed in good homes. The shelter, which can comfortably house 90 cats at a time, is currently housing 130 cats.

According to FCAS Director Lara Hudson, the amount of cats coming into the shelter hasn’t slowed down since summer. “We expected the number of cats entering the shelter to decrease by the end of September, but it hasn’t,” she says. “We’re counting on the public to help us save lives by taking advantage of this promotion.”

For absolutely no cost, adopters will receive a cat that has been spayed or neutered, has had all vaccines and is microchipped. To view cats available for adoption, visit www.fultonanimalservices.com/adoptable-animals.
