Adopt a cat, save a life, save a lot

The Bangor Humane Society desperately needs the local community to adopt a shelter cat. Once again, in the last 24 hours, over 65 cats have been surrendered to the Humane Society for a variety of reasons. This brings the current number of cats in care of the Humane Society reaching over 200 again- with over 79 adult cats and 65 kittens currently housed in the shelter and over 75 residing in foster care. 
In an effort to find forever homes for their adoptive cats, the Bangor Humane Society is again offering a “Name your adoption fee” discount program for cats 6 months and older. Individuals can choose the adoption fee for their cat of choice by simply making a minimum donation of at least $10. Of course, the Humane Society encourages those who can afford to donate more to do so, as all adoption fees go toward the care of the many cats currently in care of the Humane Society.  The discount program is effective until further notice.
 During last month’s special, the community turned out in large quantities to answer the call for help, adopting over 180 cats/kittens in the two and a half week period.
 Adoptive families are urgently needed so the Bangor Humane Society can place these cats in forever homes before they succumb to illness from shelter stress The shelter is once again near maximum capacity and the growing number increases the health risks to our adoptive cat population. The Bangor Humane Society is now asking for help from the public to help find forever homes for all of the pets looking for a second chance.
