Name Your Price Cat Adoption Special 2019
NAME YOUR PRICE ADOPTION FEE ON ALL ADOPTABLE CATS FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST
Beginning Thursday, August 1 and lasting the entire month, all adoptable cats that have had a shelter stay of 30 days or longer 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 into adoptive homes to open up space for cats and kittens currently on the waiting list.
Great River Rescue has taken in 148 cats this year, but has also received requests to surrender 370 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.
