More than 150 cats, kittens availablePope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County
We have well over 150 cats and kittens at the shelter and in foster care waiting to be adopted. In celebration of all things feline, we will be reducing all our cat adoption fees by $25 through the end of August. That means cats like our pet picks of the week Ella and Po can be adopted for only $25. Ella is a beautiful 2-year-old Siamese. She's a sweet, loveable, inside only kitty. Although she lived with cats before, she much preferred the company of the family dog. Come in and meet Ella. You'll get lost in her limpid blue eyes. Po is a very handsome adult male Tuxedo cat. He's all dressed up with no place to go. Po was brought in as a stray from Rockland but, as is often the case with stray cats, no one came in to claim him. He's a very happy go lucky fella. Po would love to be someone's lap cat.
