Asheville Humane Society Announces: “$5 Felines for 5 Weeks Adoption Challenge” Cat and Kitten Adoption Promotion. All felines are just $5, September 2 – October 4
September is historically the slowest month for adoptions and one of the busiest months in terms of animals in the care of Asheville Humane Society. In order to find homes for all the cats and kittens who need a second chance, Asheville Humane Society is dropping adoption fees to just $5.00 for five weeks. From September 2 – October 4, the challenge is to exceed the number of felines’ lives saved over last September’s adoption total of 145 feline adoptions.
The reduced adoption fee of $5.00 represents an exceptional value. All adoptions include spaying/neutering, current vaccines, medical and behavioral screening, microchipping, a free starter bag of food, one month of complimentary pet health insurance, and a free post-adoption veterinary office visit with a participating veterinarian. The reduced fee applies to cats and kittens of all ages.
“During this slow month for adoptions, we really need the support of our community,” says Jennifer Brehler, Interim President of Asheville Humane Society. “We currently have a large number of cats and kittens available for adoption and every one of them deserves a chance. We’re asking everyone in our community to help us spread the word about our ‘September Challenge’ so we can continue to save as many lives as possible.”
Cats and kittens available for adoption can be viewed on the organization’s website: www.ashevillehumane.org.
