Ready and waiting! That's us cool cats - Doc, Max, Saranac and Federico. Come adopt us at the Potsdam Humane Society's half price sale. We are just four of 120+ felines at the shelter!
Does your child want a kitten? Do you love having a warm friendly furry friend on your lap when you read or watch TV? Do you have a soft spot in your heart for the good old household cat? If the answer is “Yes!” to any of the above, the Potsdam Humane Society’s Shelter is the place to go! They have more kittens and cats in-house than even their spanking new shelter can accommodate. And the PHS price on feline adoptions has never been better.
Unfortunately, St. Lawrence County’s abandoned and lost cat population has grown exponentially in recent weeks, and PHS has been inundated with homeless cats and kittens. They are beautiful and social and just waiting for the right person or family to give them a loving forever home. The problem is critical and is really testing PHS’s commitment to being a “no kill” shelter by saving all healthy adoptable animals to make their way to the shelter’s door.
Anne Smith, PHS Executive Director commented: “The problem borders on being out-of-hand. We have so many beautiful cats of all ages in our shelter right now that we are going to be unable to accept any new ones. We need our supporters, cat lovers, and those desiring the companionship of a pet to step forward and help us alleviate this critical problem.
In an effort to find fantastic, permanent homes for 50 cats during the month of July, PHS will be reducing the adoption fee on adults to a mere $25. We need the public to help us on this one. Euthanasia is an option we do not want to be forced to use with any of these beautiful cats”.
Anyone interested in adopting a beautiful kitten or adult cat can stop by the Potsdam Humane Society’s Shelter at 17 Madrid Avenue in Potsdam. The public can preview adoptable cats and print off an adoption form on the PHS web-site at: www.potsdamhumanesociety.org .
