"It is kitty heaven at Animal Care this week! Another 90 left today - folks are even coming forward to help the underage kittens and sick ones. But, more come in every day! Please continue to tell your friends and neighbors about our FREE cat adoption event until Friday, Sept. 6. We are thrilled and want this momentum to go on FOREVER!"
The free cats event has brought out the best in the community, where rescues, adopters, fosters and the shelter staff have all worked together to get the cats off of the euthanasia list and into forever homes. The event will continue Thursday and Friday from noon until 7 p.m. Friday at their 328 Furman Hall Road location.
Petco at Cherrydale also has several Greenville County Animal Care cats and kittens, who will be adopted out free to good homes.
All cat and kitten adoptions include testing for FIV/FeLV, vaccinations, micro-chipping and spay/neuter. If the cat hasn't already had the surgery, an appointment will be scheduled to bring kitty in to have this done free of charge.
The list of free cats and kittens still available at the shelter can be found on their Facebook page Greenville County Pet Rescue. The cats from the September 3 and September 4 deadline now have until 7 p.m. September 6 to find a home, or are at risk of euthanasia.
This page will also allow you to not only check out the foster kitties up for rescue or adoption, but to view animals rescued so far this month. Totals from yesterday for pets rescued or adopted were at 107, and tonight's figures bring the month of September up to 197 dogs and cats.
Feel free to email the shelter at email@example.com with the cats name and animal I.D. number. It may be better to visit the shelter in person, since they've been super busy between the cats needing good homes and the special adoption rate of $25 for dogs.
Many of the dogs must leave the shelter on September 7, but a new email sent to those who follow Greenville County Animal Care Services have a new selection of dogs pictured, with a September 10 deadline for adoption.
