First Ever Fee Waived Adoption Event!
The month of June is Adopt a Shelter Cat month, and the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society is kicking the month off with a first-ever fee-waived adoption promotion on all cats. On Wednesday, June 1 from 6pm to 8pm all the adoption fees for all cats over 5 months old will be waived! Kittens under 5 months will have their adoption fees reduced to only $99.
Historically, humane organizations have worried that fee waived adoptions would result in adopters valuing the animal less. However, research has demonstrated no difference between attachment to animals with a fee attached versus fee-waived adoptions, while fee-waived events like this one help to reduce shelter crowding and lengths of stay.
Adoptable cats can be previewed online at www.windsorhumane.org. Even with these deep adoption fee discounts, adopted cats still come vet checked, spayed or neutered, vaccinated (except rabies), microchipped, treated for fleas and worms, tested for FeLV/FIV, and with 6 weeks of pet insurance.
The fine print: Admin fee of $30 applies to all adoptions. Discounts cannot be combined and do not apply to previously adopted animals. Applies to feline adoption applications submitted between 6 and 8pm on June 1, 2016 only. The Humane Society reserves the right to decline any adoption application.
