Adoption fees will be waived during the month of July so that humane societies in Southeast Wisconsin can try to find homes for 1,000 cats who are a year or older.

“Just eight weeks ago we had empty adoption suites and today, we have more than 160 cats and kittens on our adoption floor looking for new homes,” said Wisconsin Humane Society President Anne Reed in a press release. “We’re hearing similar trends from our colleagues throughout Southeastern Wisconsin and we’re hoping this initiative will inspire more cat adoptions throughout the entire region.”

Furever families interested in adding a new feline friend can take advantage of a fee-free July thanks to the partnership of these humane societies:

All three campuses of WHS are participating, so residents in Milwaukee, Ozaukee and Racine counties can take advantage of the fees being waived.

And, while kittens are most often the draw, humane society officials want to encourage families to open their hearts to older cats as well.

“While summer is known as ‘kitten season’ in our area, there are so many wonderful adult cats needing homes,” said Lynn Olenik, executive director at HAWS, said in the same release. “Don’t overlook these amazing pets – they are grown up, fully trained and settled into their personalities. What’s not to like?!?”
