A kitten and cat adoption event is set for June 20 and June 21 at the high-kill shelter in upstate South Carolina.
On Friday and Saturday, Greenville County Animal Care Services challenges the community to adopt 100 cats or kittens by the end of the day on Saturday.
Instead of an adoption fee, the shelter is asking for adopters to bring in a case of canned cat food. If not, the adoption fee is only $15.00.
There are currently more than 100 cats on the Urgent Cats list on the Greenville County Pet Rescue Facebook page. Most likely, there are at least three times this many the shelter simply hasn't had time to get into the Facebook system.
Since this is kitten season, there are a lot of cats to choose from. Unfortunately, there are never enough homes for all of the cats turned into the shelter this time of year.
Fox Carolina news will be broadcasting from Animal Care on Friday from 5:00am until 9:00am. They'll have lots of information available so the public will know the basics when the shelter opens at noon.
You can also set up to have the pets you already have either spayed or neutered at their clinic. Greenville County Animal Care Services offers discount spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchipping.
