Every year approximately 4 million cats end up at shelters. The spring and summer months thousands of kittens are born. This time of the year is known as “kitten season.” Shelters from all over the country also get a flood of new homeless cats and newborn kittens. Cats are very different from dogs but also make great pets.
Every June shelters from all over celebrate Adopt-A-Cat Month. By adopting a cat from a shelter, you’re not only getting a new family member but a whole lot more. All BHS cats go through a behavior test so the people at the shelter can tell you their temperament as well as what type of household they will fit best in. At Butte Humane Society all adoptable cats come with their required vaccinations, a spay or neuter, a free examination by a local veterinarian, a microchip, a carrier, and one month free of ShelterCare insurance.
Shelters like BHS have a wide variety of cats with different colors, ages, and temperaments to choose from. Adopting a cat and kitten from Butte Humane Society starts at $55. Butte Humane Society also has a 2 for 1 adoption special on all cats. For the price of one cat you can save two lives. By adopting two cats from BHS, they can keep each other company, burn off each other’s extra energy, plus we believe that two is always better than one.
During the month of June Butte Humane Society has devoted the entire month to all cats that are up for adoption. BHS also has a variety of adopt-a-thons throughout the summer.
