Humane Society seeks help from the community
The Oneida County Humane Society Adoption Center in Rhinelander is at capacity.
“We are currently providing care for more than 90 cats at the center,” Bria Swartout, Director of the Oneida County Humane Society, said. “These cats are here because of human circumstances; at no fault of their own. These wonderful kitties deserve to have loving homes and we want to see many of them go home for the holidays which is why we’ve reduced cat adoption fees for the remainder of the year.”
For the rest of 2013, the adoption fee for cats younger than six months is $20 plus tax. Cats 6 months and up are $5 plus tax.
“The number of homeless cats right now is staggering and it’s happening everywhere,” Karla Ortman, OCHS board member, said. “We would like to place 30 cats in new homes before the end of the year. It’s a challenge and we need the community to help us. I know we can do it if we all work together.”
Adoption Center staff will help those interested select a kitty to best fit in with their family and lifestyle.
