Humane Society has full house of kittens

Posted: Updated:
Kitten season is in full swing at the Toledo Area Humane Society and the organization has a full house of adorable furry friends looking for homes.

Lucky little Alaska found a new home with Paul Brinke. He named the kitten after his home state. "I said, let's see what her name is. It's Alaska, well that's where I'm from. My thought immediately was, if I can't go back to Alaska, I can take Alaska home with me."

Alaska is one of more than 50 kittens in need of a home. Adoption supervisor Kadee Foot says they need to make some room. "Space can become an issue, so the more adoptions we can do, the more lives we are able to save."

She says summer is typically a slow time when it comes to adoption. The shelter is getting creative, holding a kitten shower. "We are having cake and some refreshments and reduced adoption prices on kittens and cats."

Kitten adoption will cost $85 and adult cats will go for $50.

Foot hopes this inspires more people to adopt. "We have had this planned for a little while, and it just so happens to be perfect timing because we are really full on cats and kittens."   

All cats and dogs at the shelter have been spayed or neutered and have their shots and a microchip.

The Kitten Shower will continue from noon until 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 28.
