Adoption fees waived for adult cats and great giveaways for adopters.

Nevada Humane Society is asking for help in finding homes for the higher than normal number of cats arriving each day at the shelter on Longley Lane in Reno.
“We are seeing as many as 40 cats and kittens arriving at the shelter daily right now. These beautiful, loving, and wonderful cats deserve loving homes and we are asking the public for help. If you could consider opening your heart and home to a cat, it would be a true lifesaver,” said Bonney Brown, Executive Director for Nevada Humane Society. “This community has a huge heart and has helped in the past, so we are asking everyone to consider taking a cat into their heart and home.”

June is national Adopt a Cat month and adoption fees are waived for all cats over six months old at Nevada Humane Society. In addition, the first 100 people to adopt an adult cat starting on June 17 will receive a free Litter-Lifter Scoop and a sample packet of H2P2 Wellness Blend catnip alternative that is sure to bring out the kitten in cats of all ages.

“We have tried both of these products here in the shelter and they are truly amazing,” said Denise Stevens, Operations Director at Nevada Humane Society. “With the Litter-Lifter’s unique design, you have a clean litter box in just two passes through the box. Cleaning the litter box is a breeze and the cats really love the Wellness Blend. We hope these gifts help bring people into the shelter, but the real reward is the love of a cat!”

All cat adopters also receive a free “Adopt a Cat” static-cling sticker with an adorable cat on it for your car window and a free Nevada Humane Society t-shirt.

All cats are spayed and neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped before being adopted. These services would normally cost over $200.

Nevada Humane Society is located at 2825 Longley Lane in Reno and is open Sunday through Friday from 11:00 am until 6:30 pm and on Saturday from 10:00 am until 6:30 pm. For more information on adopting a pet, please call 775-856-2000, ext. 302 or to foster animals, call 775-856-2000, ext. 321.
