Humane Society celebrates Cinco de Meow with $5 cat adoptions

By Humane Society of Knox County | May 01, 2012

THOMASTON — The Humane Society of Knox County will celebrate Cinco de Mayo "el gato"-style with a Cinco de Meow adoption special beginning Saturday, May 5 and running through Saturday, May 19.

Adult cats, aged one year and older, will head home for the exceptionally reduced adoption fee of just $5! Normal adoption fees for adult felines are $50 at the HSKC. Each cat receives a health evaluation, spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, rabies vaccinations, de-worming, flea treatment, a complimentary overall wellness examination with a participating local veterinarian and one free bag of cat food courtesy of Hills Science Diet, valued at more than $300. And, best of all, you go home with a fantastic feline companion.

When you choose the adoption option, you and your furry friend celebrate a victory over homelessness and pet overpopulation. Give a homeless animal a second chance at life by choosing to adopt from the Humane Society of Knox County.
