Cat adoption fee lowered for five days in August

Written by 

The Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation in Waynesville is lowering the fee to $5 to adopt cats five months or older. The promotion will run for five days starting Aug. 14.

The unwanted cat population increases in the summertime, and many owners dump felines at the rescue shelter’s doorstep or release them on the street. Unwanted cats are bound for euthanization if no willing person steps up to adopt them.

The foundation said it euthanized about 100 cats during the month of July at a cost of $5,148 to taxpayers. The shelter estimates that it costs an average of $87 per cat in medical care to prepare a cat for adoption.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12.

Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
