Kittens, Kittens, and More Kittens Available for Adoption at the Northeast Georgia Animal Shelter
It is kitten season, officially. That means it’s the time of year when female adult cats are having their litters and that means the shelter will soon be overwhelmed with dozens of litters of kittens needing homes.
Shelter Director Tammi Jourdenais is encouraging anyone looking for a kitten to adopt to stop by the shelter.
“We will soon be covered up with litters of kittens and several months ago we had lots of calls from people looking to adopt a kitten but we didn’t have any. Now, we are starting to get litters of kittens in so it’s a good time to come by and pick out the kitten you’ve been waiting for,” she said.
The adoption fee for cats and kittens is $45, which includes their spay or neuter when old enough, their first set of vaccinations, and deworming.
Jourdenais pointed out that that is much cheaper in the long run than if you got a ‘free’ kitten.
“Free kittens aren’t really free when you think about it. The series of vaccines kittens need can run upwards of $100 and the spay or neuter can cost at least that,” she said.
The Northeast Georgia Animal Shelter is open Tuesdays – Saturdays from 11a – 4p.
The shelter is located on Bear Creek Road in Lavonia. You can visit their Facebook page for more information or call them at 706-356-5363.
