Adopting a cat or kitten can be a wonderful Christmas present for yourself or the entire family. Sometimes the only thing keeping someone from adopting a pet is the initial adoption cost. My daughter and I have wanted to adopt a cat for quite a while, but the prices in our area have always been very high. Then we found cats up for adoption at the Mchenry, Illinois PetSmart for a very small adoption fee. The cats are from the Animal Outreach Humane Society of Mchenry County and they are having a “Home for the Holidays” adoption sale at the PetSmart stores in Mchenry, Crystal Lake, and Algonquin, Illinois.
About Animal Outreach Humane Society. The Animal Outreach Humane Society of Mchenry County is a non-profit, volunteer organization whose goal is to help Mchenry County become a no-kill community in which adoptable and/or treatable cats and healthy feral cats are not euthanized. They work hard to find homes for adoptable cats and to spay or neuter feral cats in order to control the feral population. All animals adopted through the Animal Outreach Humane Society are also spayed or neutered, plus fully vetted, micro-chipped, dewormed, tested negative for FELV/FIV, and current on distemper shots.
Cat & Kitten Adoptions at PetSmart. The Animal Outreach Humane Society has cats and/or kittens available for adoption year round at the Mchenry, Crystal Lake, and Algonquin PetSmart stores. The Mchenry and Algonquin stores house cats and kittens from the Animal Outreach Humane Society on site that you can visit any time during business hours. The Animal Outreach Humane Society is at the Crystal Lake PetSmart on selected Saturdays from 11a.m. to 2p.m. doing on-the-spot cat and kitten adoptions. They are also at the Mchenry and Algonquin stores doing on-the-spot adoptions on selected weekend dates from 11a.m. to 2p.m. To see these times and dates view the Animal Outreach Humane Society’s “See All Upcoming Events” on their homepage. You can also view cats currently available at the Mchenry and Algonquin PetSmart stores, all the cats up for adoption, and general adoption information on the Animal Outreach Humane Society website under “Adoptable Pets”.
The Animal Outreach Humane Society does not have a shelter facility so all cats and kittens up for adoption are either fostered in loving, volunteer homes or housed at one of the PetSmart stores.
Home for the Holidays Adoption Sale. Normal adoption prices from Animal Outreach Humane Society are $100 for an adult cat and $125 for a kitten with some prices being lower for cats with special needs. During the “Home for the Holidays” adoption sale, prices have been lowered to $25 for an adult cat and $75 for a kitten or $100 for two kittens. These “Home for the Holidays” sale prices will run through the end of 2010.
If you live in the area and have been thinking about adopting a cat or kitten for Christmas, please consider giving one of these affordable felines a loving home.
