The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society concluded its sixth annual Feline Fest Sunday, July 29. Begun Thursday, the four-day celebration offered special feline adoption prices at the Humane Society in Menands and at the Society’s three satellite locations: the PetSmart stores in Glenmont and Latham, and the Petco in Clifton Park.
After all of the adoptions from the satellite adoption centers came in a total of 132 cats were adopted in 4 days. MHHS particularly noted the hard work of the volunteers who run all the satellite adoption sites.
Thank you also goes to Dr. Rice from Miller Animal Hospital for volunteering to come in before Feline Fest to make sure all the kitties were ready to go home right away.
The animal shelter cares for an average of over 300 felines, of which over 100 remain in foster care. The Society has taken in an average of 15 cats per day for the last month.
The shelter still has many cats, kittens, dogs and puppies looking for a home. See their webpage for an updated list of pets and upcoming activities.
Celebrating its 125th anniversary, the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, founded in 1887, is the largest animal protection agency in New York’s Capital Region and serves as the SPCA for Albany and Rensselaer Counties, investigating and prosecuting cases of animal cruelty. The Society receives no local, state or federal government funding, nor does it receive funding from any national groups such as ASPCA or Humane Society of the United States.
