MOUNT VERNON — To celebrate Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month this June, Whisker Connection, in collaboration with the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the makers of Fresh Step litter, is participating in a fee-waived adoption program to help find loving homes for cats.
ASPCA research recently published in the Journal of Applied Animal Welfare Science found that waiving fees for adult cats boosts adoptions without diminishing the value adopters place on their cats.
The free adoption promotion will continue through June 30 for cats 1 year and older. All other adoption policies and thorough match-making procedures will remain in effect. For details on adoptable cats, visit www.whiskerconnection.org.
