All the cats are spayed and neutered, up-to-date on their shots including the rabies vaccine and micro chipped.

Currently, there are between 35 and 50 cats in the animal shelter and all are looking for a new home, Diamond said.

The animal shelter also runs other specials throughout the week, such as mature cat Monday where any cat over five years old is $25 off. On Tuesday, it’s tortoiseshell Tuesday, where any tortoiseshell cat is $25 off. On Wednesday, two cats can be adopted for the price of one. On Thursdays, tabby cats are $25 off and Friday is black cat Friday, where any black cat is $25 off.

The regular adoption fee for cats and kittens is $40, which comes with a 30-day health insurance policy, 30-day return policy and a four-pound bag of Science Diet food, Diamond said.

“These are fully healthy cats and we will match a cat with everyone who wants one,” Diamond said. “Whether they’re looking for a playful cat, or a working cat, or a black cat, we will pair you up with the best option.”
