This is the first time that Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control is holding their "June Adopt a Cat Month" where cat adoption is only $5.00.

All adoptions are being subsidized through a special Animal Care and Control Commission Grant to allow the normal $65 dollar fee to be lowered to $5.00.

The $5.00 adoption fee includes a first round of vaccinations plus a spaying or neutering of the cat.

Peggy Bender says, "Really it's about easing the upfront expenses for people who want to add a pet to their family but for us it's about placing spayed and neutered and microchipped and vaccinated pets into the community and into homes."

"Adopt a Cat Month" was created by the American Humane in an effort to promote kitten adoptions during a time wen shelters are inundated with litters in need of a home.

If you're interest in adopting a cat, the $5.00 discount ends June 13th.
