The Humane Society of North Myrtle Beach is currently holding what they have dubbed a "certified pre-owned cat sale." This promotion will continue through the end of March 2012.
Everyone love a cute, cuddly little kitty, right? The playfulness, the friskiness, the over-all awesomeness, but what happens when little kitty grows up, when the friskiness ends and furballs begin? Unfortunately for some, this means being put on the street to fend for themselves. For others, it means ending up at a place like the Humane Society of North Myrtle Beach with 164 other felines.
It's no secret animal shelters are overcrowded. In fact, in 2011 WPDE wrote that according to Horry County Animal Care Center staff, almost 70% of animals in southern shelters are euthanized because of lack of funds and space.
So what better way to help ease overcrowding than to hold a promotion like this one? Adult cats are offered up for adoption for a nominal $25 fee. This includes vaccinations and spay/neutering. Talk about a deal? Seriously folks! If you have room in your heart and your home, why not consider it?
For more information, including times you can stop by the shelter, please read the press release on scnow.com.
Not a cat lover? Never fear, there are plenty of other ways to help support your local humane society, from being a volunteer dog walker to making a monetary donation. Volunteer opportunities and other ways to help are listed on the Humane Society of North Myrtle Beach's website, here.
