MASON CITY – Every Friday in the month of May, the Humane Society of North Iowa (HSNI) will reduce the adoption fee for all adult shelter cats to just $5.00, a savings of $100.00 from the usual $105.00 adoption fee.
This promotion is being generously funded by Hanlontown couple, Shanan and Aaron Redinger. The couple visited the HSNI with the idea and offer to help increase cat adoptions at the shelter. “We recently visited another shelter while on vacation who held a similar cat adoption drive and it was very successful,” said Shanan Redinger, “We felt that we could help our local shelter by personally making up the difference of a reduced adoption fee promotion,” concluded Shanan.
“We really wanted to help the displaced animals in our community find forever homes,” said Aaron Redinger. “We know that shelters are very crowded with cats this time of year and thought this adoption drive idea could help the HSNI increase their cat adoptions.”
The Five Dollar Feline adoption drive will be offered every Friday during the month of May on adult cats age 1 year or older. The $5.00 adoption fee will cover: spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccine, feline leukemia testing and a veterinarian exam. To qualify, adoption applications must be submitted during business hours on any Friday within the month of May. Applicants must meet all adoption standards and requirements.
“Currently we have 67 adult cats available for adoption at the shelter who all need forever homes,” said Sybil Soukup, Executive Director of the HSNI. “We are extremely grateful for the very generous offer from the Redinger’s to help us promote and find homes for our shelter cats by supplementing their adoption fee.”
