Finding a home for unwanted cats & strays

 

Each year in the U.S., about 4 million homeless dogs, cats and other pets are euthanized in shelters. In Michigan alone, more than 60,000 cats and kittens are euthanized each year (only includes shelters reporting euthanasia rates to the State of Michigan). Some shelters euthanize 75% or more of the cats that are in their care.

If you have a cat that you can no longer care for – or if you have found a stray cat or kitten – you have a number of options before surrendering the pet to an animal shelter. Please consider:

  1. Try every way possible to keep the cat.
  2. Get your cat spayed/neutered and health checked to increase
    chances for adoption.
  3. Ask friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.
  4. Contact local pet supplies stores.
  5. Contact no-kill rescue groups.
  6. A shelter should be your last choice.
  7. Finally . . . . NEVER, EVER just leave your pet at any of the above places. Pet abandonment is against the law.
