Name Your Own Price Cat Adoption Special all December!
All Adoptable Cats at Great River Rescue are available for any price you choose to pay! Plus, $25 will be donated for each adoption through December 24.
Beginning Saturday, December 1 and lasting the entire month, all adoptable cats at Great River Rescue will be available for adoption at whatever price you are willing to pay! Great River Rescue currently has many cats available for adoption and even more on its waiting list to be brought in and put up for adoption. The goal of the special is to get cats and kittens into adoptive homes to open up space for cats and kittens currently on the waiting list.
Great River Rescue has taken in 216 cats this year, but has also received over 435 requests to surrender cats to the shelter with that gap growing by the day. With more cats than the shelter has capacity to care for, it is important to find homes quickly for the shelter cats. “Our goal is always to get our animals into homes as quickly as possible,” said Executive Director Brandon Mustful. “We don’t want cost to be a hindrance to anyone getting a new companion.”
Every cat at Great River Rescue is spayed/neutered prior to adoption, is current on vet recommended vaccinations, and been given preventative care treatments. According to Executive Director Mustful, the shelter spends an average of $500 or more per cat to take care of them while they wait for their new homes. The normal adoption fee for a cat is $100 and the fee for a dog is $200.
In addition, Drs. Mark Colliton and Sherry Billups of Sanford Bemidji will be donating $25 for every adoption of a cat or dog toward the shelter’s spay/neuter fund. That’s right – the more adoptions, the larger the donation will be! The extra donation will be valid through December 24.
Great River Rescue, a non-profit, was established in 1977 as the Beltrami Humane Society. Over 10,000 kittens, puppies, cats, and dogs have been adopted from the shelter since that time. A no-kill shelter, it can house up to 45 felines and 25 canines and maintains a waiting list of animals to be surrendered. Located at 1612 Carr Lake Road, the shelter is open from 12:30 – 5:30 PM, Tuesday through Saturday. Executive Director Mustful can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 751-7910.
