GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — If you’re looking to get a cat, now may be the time as the Kent County Animal Shelter is waiving the adoption fee for adult cats this week.
In addition, the adoption fee for kittens under four months old has been cut in half to $20.
The shelter is waiving the fees because of an overabundance of felines in its care. The shelter says it often finds itself housing more animals time of year, but that its current population is even larger than usual.
The cats available for adoption have all been spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. People wishing to adopt a cat must provide a photo ID with a current address and fill out an adoption form (which can be found online). The shelter will also be checking with applicants’ landlords to confirm pets are allowed.
The shelter is located at 740 Fuller Ave. NE in Grand Rapids.
Regular fees will be reinstated after Friday.
