LAS VEGAS (KTNV) – Homeward Bound Cat Adoptions says they are currently at CATpacity with cats and kittens, so adoptions are required now.
In a published statement, the organization said, “Choose from kittens, old cats, cute cats, kind cats, and calm cats! There are spotted cats, striped cats, white cats, and black cats. They all have to find a home – YOUR home! Standard adoption guidelines apply. “
“The fact that we have so many cats and kittens in distress still goes back to the pandemic. After the local castration and neutering services were shut down last year, this resulted in more cats having more kittens this year, ”said Carol Fox, co-founder and managing director of Homeward Bound Cat Adoptions. “Then there are the ongoing pandemic-related challenges, people who are unemployed and cannot take care of their cats, people who move and cannot take their cats with them. You have tough choices to make. So are we. We have reached our limit and cannot help others until we find a new home for the cats in our care. “
Adoptions are possible Tuesday through Sunday at the Homeward Bound adoption center and on Saturdays at Petco by appointment.
Adoption fees range from $ 70 to $ 150, depending on age. There are discounts for two and for seniors. All cats are neutered or neutered, vaccinated and chipped.
Many adult cats have received other health exams or medical care as well, according to Homeward Bound.
Fox also says her community impact is taking a hit. Organizations that typically turn to Homeward Bound for help cannot get the assistance they need. “It’s not used to saying no, but we know our limits and we have to respect that,” said Fox. “We know we need adoptions to overcome this. We need people who have thought about expanding their families to just do it. We have so many cats and kittens waiting for a loving new home and we just have to get people in the door. “
Homeward Bound is open Tuesday through Sunday from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM at 2675 East Flamingo Rd by appointment. For more information, visit homewardboundcats.org or call 702-329-9771.
