Floods of people came in and lots of cats came out as the Lincoln County Humane Society held their first $25 cat adoption event over the weekend.
The cost included first vaccinations, spaying or neutering and microchips, which caught the eye of many first-time and veteran pet enthusiast across Niagara.
More than 70 cats and kittens found new homes in what officials are calling the most successful adopt-a-thon to date.
“The community response was terrific, it was great to see so many people from Welland, Niagara Falls and all over the region come to the LCHS to find their forever friend.” said Kevin Strooband, Executive Director of the LCHS on their official Facebook page.
All cats at the facility found homes in less than two days which featured a barbeque and activities for the children. Line-ups were out the door on Saturday with hopeful future owners waiting to see if they could take advantage of the low costs to find a furry friend.
Unfortunately the LCHS expects the numbers to fill back up as thousands of cats are without homes across Ontario with poor spaying and neutering issues facing outdoor cats. Each cat can produce 12 kittens each year without the proper medical assistance creating a large overpopulation of cats in Ontario.
The LCHS will be receiving more of those without homes in the upcoming few days. The price goes back up to $99 for kittens and cats that are over 3-years-old are just $50.
