The Santa Fe Animal Shelter announced that they will waive the adoption fee on all cats, six-months and older, for the rest of September, due to an influx of cats at the shelter.
“We have been helping other shelters around the state with their overpopulation of cats this season, which has now lead us to be a bit overcrowed,” Public Relations Officer Murad Kirdar said.
Santa Fe Animal Shelter, northern New Mexico’s largest open-admission, no-kill shelter, will hold its fee waived adoption event 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily at the shelter’s main campus only, at 100 Caja del Rio.
“We are hoping to ease the population in the cat rooms by waiving the adoption fee at the shelter and making it possible for everyone to adopt,” Kirdar said.
All cats adopted from the shelter are spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and come with one month of pet insurance plus a bag of food.
