Kentucky Humane Society offers month-long special in honor of Adopt a Shelter Cat Month
The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is celebrating Adopt a Shelter Cat Month by waiving adoption fees on all cats age one year and older the entire month of June.
The special is valid at all 10 KHS adoption centers, including its East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane and nine adoption centers in Feeders Supply stores.
UPDATE: Prince, Queenie and their kittens who were found abandoned in containers last week on KHS property are all doing well. The three older kittens who were found with Prince were determined to be around four months of age and have been named Licorice, Thorne and Salem. After receiving a clean bill of health from our veterinarian, all three kittens have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.
On Monday afternoon, a Kentucky Humane Society staff member found two containers taped shut in front of a locked door at our main facility. The first box contained a gray mother cat, whom we named Queenie, and 6 young kittens. The second box had a male cat with 3 older kittens. We named the adult cat Prince. While the person who abandoned the cats had tried to poke holes in the plastic container, none of the holes actually penetrated the walls, leaving the cats with no airflow. Heat rolled out of the container as we cut it open. However, we were relieved to see that all the cats survived their time in these makeshift ovens and appear to be healthy.
Do you remember Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street? They were best friends. This Bert and this Ernie are best friends as well, and they have been for 15 years. Both cats have lived together for their entire lives, and now at the ripe old age of 15, these sweet fellows were brought to the Kentucky Humane Society. Bert and Ernie were brought here because their owner’s health had declined to the point where she could no longer care for them. After spending some time at KHS they were finally adopted together, but were returned again because their new owner could not care for them due to health as well. Now these seniors are looking for a new home to spend the remainder of their life, together.
