Adoption fees reduced for kittens, waived for cats to handle high intake

When Young-Williams Animal Center opens tomorrow, July 10, the Feline Palooza adoption special will begin. Adoption fees for kittens younger than 5 months will be reduced to $75, and cats older than 5 months will be free.

“Intake for cats and kittens has increased this week, and the shelter is currently at full capacity for felines,” said Monica Brown, director of sheltering for Young-Williams Animal Center. “Each one of these animals deserve a loving, forever home, and we hope this special brings all individuals and families who are thinking of adopting a cat to our center to find their new best friend.”

Every adopted animal will receive the services usually covered by regular fees, which include veterinary physical exam, spay/neuter surgery, some standard vaccinations, microchip with registration and more. The special will be available at both Young-Williams Animal Center at 3201 Division St., off Sutherland Avenue, and the Young-Williams Animal Village at 6400 Kingston Pike on Bearden Hill.

The best and most humane way to help control pet overpopulation in East Tennessee and lower intake numbers at area shelters is to spay and neuter animals in the community.

“Spaying and neutering save lives,” Brown added. “When we have fewer litters being born, intake numbers decrease. That increases space for other animals and decreases the need for euthanasia. We have low-cost spay/neuter options available for pet owners at just $70 for a dog and $45 for a cat.”

Community pet owners can call 865-215-6677 for more information and to make an appointment with the Spay/Neuter Solutions Clinic.
