Feline Fest a success | Community Spirit
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.
The Society, located at 3 Oakland Avenue in Menands, is open for adoptions seven days a week, Monday through Friday 10AM to 6PM, Saturday 10AM to 5PM and Sunday 1PM to 4PM. In addition, cats are available for adoption at the Society’s satellite locations at the PetSmart stores in Glenmont and Latham and the Petco store located at 6 Halfmoon Crossing in Clifton Park.
