With the arrival earlier this week of 95 cats rescued from Klamath County, the Oregon Humane Society is offering the lowest prices of the year to help find homes for cats and make more space available for the rescued felines. Full story of rescue here »

Adoption Fees Reduced

Adoption fees for all adult cats (older than six months) at OHS will be reduced to just 95 cents from Thursday, June 25 through Sunday, June 28. Adoption fees for adult cats are usually $12–$85. The cats available starting tomorrow will include 15 to 20 of the rescued felines in addition to the current shelter cats.

All prospective adopters will receive OHS adoption counseling from experienced staff to ensure all pets go to capable homes. All dogs, cats and rabbits adopted from OHS have been spayed/neutered.

More Cats to be Available Following Needed Dental Care

“We’re looking for good homes for as many cats as possible in the coming days, as our shelter is at capacity when it comes to caring for cats,” said OHS Executive Director Sharon Harmon. Many of the rescued cats from Klamath County require extensive dental care, including surgery, and will become available for adoption over the coming days and weeks as their medical condition allows. The OHS Holman Medical Center, a full-service hospital for shelter animals, is providing the needed medical care for the rescued pets.

A total of 98 cats were seized from a resident of Chiloquin earlier this month. All but three of those cats, which are currently receiving care in Klamath County, arrived at OHS on June 22. Klamath law enforcement officers are seeking to charge the owner with 98 counts of felony animal neglect related to the unsanitary and unhealthy conditions in which the cats were living.
