The Humane Society of Kent County is proud to be a part of Maryland 2,000: Saving lives across Maryland!
Animal Shelters across Maryland are combining forces to find homes for thousands of felines this year in the first-ever “Maryland 2,000.”
Beginning July 1st and going through July 31st, animal shelters in Maryland (INCLUDING the HSKC!) will be waiving adoption fees for felines with the collective goal of finding homes for at least 2,000 cats and kittens across the state. Cats of all ages and personalities will be available for adoption, including kittens who are born during the warm summer months, known as Kitten Season.
“Kitten season is a busy time for animal shelters in Maryland,” stressed Melissa Jones, V.M.D., Chief, Baltimore County Animal Services. “This surge of kittens and moms coming into our already full shelters makes it critical that we find them all homes so we can continue to take in other cats and kittens who need our help.”
Regular adoption procedures at all participating shelters still apply. Please visit the website of participating shelters in your area to see pets available for adoption and review their specific adoption policies. You can find HSKC-adoptable cats and kittens featured here on our website and on our Facebook page – but nothing takes the place of visiting and meeting them in person!
If you’ve been considering adopting a cat or adding another cat to your family, July is the time to do it – take advantage of our waived adoption fees today!
