Name-Your-Own-Price Adoption Promotion
The Coulee Region Humane Society will extend its name-your-own-price adoption special for all cats and kittens available for adoption now until Sunday, Aug. 20.
The special, dubbed the “Cat Days of Summer,” enables the public to choose how much they want to pay to adopt a homeless cat or kitten. The humane society started the promotion last week when it reached capacity for its feline population and was in desperate need of help.
More than 35 cats found their forever homes last week because of the promotion. The humane society hopes to top that this week.
The humane society’s “Twice the Love” adoption special will also apply to the Cat Days of Summer adoption promotion. “Twice the Love” allows two cats to be adopted for one fee.
For more information about the name-your-own-price adoption event, call the Coulee Region Humane Society at 608-781-4014.
