Cat adoption fees reduced

A special cat adoption opportunity is being made available by the Lakeshore Humane Society throughout September. During the month, the adoption fee for cats over one year of age is reduced to $40. As with all adoptions, this includes: spay/neuter; rabies, distemper, and leukemia vaccinations; FIV/FeLV testing; flea and worming treatments; 10-day health guarantee; and a 30-day refund for return of the cat if there is not a good match with the adopter.

The usual adoption fee for kittens is in effect for September. For kittens under five months, the fee is $75 each or $110 for two. For kittens over five months, the fee is $60 each or $90 for two. For senior cats (over 8 years old), the adoption fee is always $30.

The Lakeshore Humane Society holds Open Adoption Hours Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m., and Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m. (Individual appointments outside these times are also available.) The LHS Adoption Center is located at 431 E. Chestnut St. in Dunkirk.
