It’s Thursday December 1st. Good Morning I’m Karim Mosna with your daily news brief. In the news…
The Kingston Humane Society has launched Home For The Holidays today, as adoptable cat numbers soar to over 90. As part of the campaign, all adult cats can be adopted for $50, while all senior, VIP or special needs cats can be adopted for $25. Executive Director Gord Hunter says, “Our goal is to get at least half of these cats into loving homes before January,” “We’ve had another year of operating well over capacity and one of the consequences of being over capacity is that many of our cats have longer stays.”Many of them have been through hell before they end up at our door and we want the remainder of their lives to be the absolute best.”
According to a release from the KHS,During the holiday season, animal shelters can find themselves bursting at the seams. Foster volunteers are frequently not able to care for animals over the holidays and the public is more concerned about strays due to weather conditions. This combination can bring even more animals into an already overcrowded shelter. The regular adoption process still applies and more information can be found on the KHS website.
