Montana Animal Shelters Hold Emergency Adopt-a-thon


Due to an unusually high number of cats and kittens that have come into Missoula’s animal shelters recently, the Humane Society of Western Montana and Missoula Animal Control are holding an emergency “adopt-a-thon”. To help ease the burden on the overcrowded shelters, the Humane Society will offer reduced adoption fees.

The adopt-a-thon will run through October 13, giving potential adopters a perfect opportunity to find just the right cat to add to their families. They have kittens, adults, pairs, de-clawed indoor cats, cats who like to go outdoors, in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes.

If your house is already at capacity, the Humane Society would be delighted to accept donations for spay/neuter procedures, and is always looking for volunteers to help with daily care of animals in residence.

Nearly one hundred cat and kittens are now at the shelter, which is well over capacity. Several other cats are in foster care. You can see some of the animals available for adoption on the Humane Society of Western Montana web site.

    I will be sending them a small check to help with spay/neuter. With all the bad news for animals lately, I’m glad they are at least trying to do something to get these precious animals into homes. So often I feel so depressed reading all these stories. I hope those of you who are able will join me in supporting the “local” shelters (this one is NOT local to me) who are trying to do the right thing for the animals. Maybe that’s where we really can make a difference. Just a thought . . .
