The Pearl River County SPCA will run a lower adoption fee for all cats and kittens within the next week.

Between Dec. 15 and Dec. 26, the adoption fee for all cats will be $26 and for all kittens will be $40, which is less than half the regular fee, PRC SPCA public relations representative Maria Diamond said.

Combined, the shelter currently houses about 55 cats and kittens. All the cats and kittens are spayed and neutered, very well socialized, good with dogs and they’re the perfect pet for anyone, Diamond said.

Our goal is to find the animals a home where they can be loved.”
