The Capital Area Humane Society has many wonderful cats and kittens up for adoption. For the month of November all cats are eligible for a special Two-FUR-One adoption fee.
The public can adopt cats from the shelter and receive two for ("fur") the price of one cat adoption.
This means that every cat will receive the following services for the price of one adoption fee:
•Rabies vaccine if the animal is old enough
•Feline leukemia test
•Microchipping and microchip registration
"Cats remain our greatest challenge. There is no protection under Ohio law for cats who are lost, unlike dogs which are subject to required holding periods mandated and funded by county dog licenses and tax support," said Jodi Lytle Buckman, executive director of the Capital Area Humane Society.
The Capital Area Humane Society is an open admission shelter for cats, the only shelter in a 100-mile radius with this policy. With an estimated one million stray or feral cats in central Ohio, the Capital Area Humane Society is most often the only option available for lost and homeless cats. In 2007, the organization sheltered or provided services for 10,342 cats and kittens.
The Capital Area Humane Society, a non-profit animal welfare organization founded in 1883, provides programs and services for animals and people in central Ohio. It is our mission to fight animal cruelty, help animals in need and advocate for their well-being.
More than 95 percent of funding is provided by donations and fees for services and do not receive operating support from national organizations.
