As summer temperatures heat up, the KW Humane Society has as many cats as it can handle.
“We are asking for the public’s help. We are managing a crisis and need the community’s help to save the lives of as many cats as possible,” said Humane Society executive director Jack Kinch.
The Humane Society recently increased its cat capacity by 30 per cent and recruited nearly 100 foster homes to care for homeless and orphaned kittens, but still finds itself dealing with an abundance of felines. Nearly 100 cats and kittens find their way to the Humane Society each week.
“Overcrowding poses serious health risks to the overall physical, mental and emotional health of the whole population and could result in illness, disease and potentially even death,” said Kinch.
Earlier this year, the KW Humane Society joined 700 other shelters and rescue organizations across North America in pledging to not euthanize any cats.
In order to meet those obligations, the KW Humane Society is looking to find new adoption families.
