A record number of cats and kittens were adopted during Mohawk Hudson Humane Society’s Feline Fest.
The fest was held on Thursday, July 26 through Sunday, July 29. According to the society, 135 cats and kittens found new homes.
“We were happy to see so many people respond to Feline Fest. Many families left with more than one cat or kitten. The smiles on the faces of the new pet parents, our volunteers and staff members were incredible! You could just see how delighted they were and there was a lot of purring going on as well. The good mood was contagious,” said Brad Shear, Executive Director in a statement.
According to Shear, the shelter was caring for over 340 felines, with 120 in foster care. This means that the number of animals at the shelter is more manageable but the shelter is still open for adoptions.
