(Bowling Green)—June is National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month. To celebrate the Wood County Humane Society (The WCHS) is offering several exciting adoption specials throughout the month to help its cats find their forever homes.
All month long any cat aged 7 months or older will have its adoption fee reduced by half. And each week the organization will host a “Staff Favorite” whose adoption fee will be waived. More information about these adoption specials, including the identity of the weekly “Staff Favorite,” can be found on the organization’s Facebook page or/and website.
All adoptable cats at The WCHS have been spayed/neutered, have been microchipped, and have received age-appropriate vaccinations. Cats adopted from The WCHS are required to leave in a carrier at the time of the adoption. Carriers can be purchased at the shelter.
National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month began as a response to the approximately 4 million cats that end up in shelters every year, including the thousands that are born every spring and summer during “kitten season.” The event is intended to bring awareness to the issue, as well as to help alleviate some of the overcrowding in shelters nationwide.
The WCHS, located in Bowling Green, Ohio, is a private, non-profit managed admission shelter providing care for homeless and abused pets and investigating cruelty complaints in Wood County. The organization receives no funding from The United Way, or national humane organizations, instead relying on earned revenue and the generosity of individual donors and businesses to fund our programs such as Safe Haven and food assistance programs, spay/neuter transport, and educational presentations. The WCHS provides care for hundreds of animals each year—from dogs and cats, to horses, goats, and pocket pets. All animals admitted into our adoption program are housed and cared for as long as it takes to find their fur-ever home. For more information on adopting and/or volunteering, see:
