Free Cat Adoptions Are Being Offered Through July At 16 Maryland Shelters

Marylanders interested in adopting a feline should definitely consider doing it now. A total of 16 humane societies and shelters statewide are offering free cat adoption through July.

The standard adoption fees will be waived beginning Saturday July 1, in an effort to find homes for 2,000 playful, furry felines. The Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance will offer a certificate for free cat exam and a goody bag to anyone who adopts a cat from one of the four shelters they operate. The Cat Hospital at Towson will perform the exam.

“Kitten Season” has recently begun so animal shelters are expecting an influx of kittens.

Maryland Humane Societies Offer Free Cat Adoption“Kitten season is a busy time for animal shelters in Maryland,” Melissa Jones, the chief of Baltimore County Animal Services, wrote in a news release.

“This surge of kittens and moms coming into our already full shelters makes it critical that we find them all homes so we can continue to take in other cats and kittens who need our help.”

The adoption process remains unchanged, just the adoption fees will be waived.
