Of the almost 100 cats that were brought back to the Society from the Hillside, NJ collector, many were infected with ringworm in addition to other health problems. We continue to monitor the cats, and have integrated those that are clearly free of ringworm with our cats awaiting adoption.
A change in the outlook and assimilation of cat colonies has created a nightmare for the Society when a cry for help is issued to help these animals. There arenąt enough homes for all of them; and more arrive every day. We will continue with our open door policy but situations such as those created by cat collectors has created a severe financial hardship, inadequate cage space, limitations on veterinary care and emotional distress on Society staffers.
Yes, June is Adopt-A-Shelter Cat month ... but each year, the number of unwanted cats and kittens has grown and the number of homes has decreased. Present nationwide statistics indicate that there are 77.7 million cats and 65 million dogs in 64.2 million households. We will continue, as we have in the past, to feature some of the beautiful felines available to forever homes. The Society is open 7 days a week as a convenience to those searching for a new addition to your family. You will be blessed with years of loving companionship by adopting one of our felines. Pictured here are some of the Hillside cats awaiting adoption, but you can also log on to www.petfinder.org and see many more of our delightful cats at our various branches.
Please help us in our rescue efforts to help these and the thousands of other deserving cats and kittens that come through our doors each year. Each arriving cat receives a 4x1 inoculation, frontline, and routine deworming. Upon adoption each cat receives a rabies shot and a microchip, and is neutered. All included in the adoption fee. We want our cats and kittens to go out healthy and happy, but it comes with a price tag. Your donations help us continue the extensive health care we provide for our felines. Please donate today and be part of this effort.
