MASON, Mich. — Ingham County Animal Control & Shelter is reaching capacity of care for cats. With the re-opening of the shelter last month, cat intakes have increased exponentially. In the last seven days, there have been 84 cats surrendered either by owners or as strays to the shelter. Shelter staff is working diligently to place younger kittens into foster homes, and promoting this Saturday (July 25th) for the start of the “Caturday Saturday” adoption specials.

Until more cats currently at the shelter have been placed, the shelter is not accepting new cat surrenders. If you have cat you are no longer able to care for, or have found a loose cat, shelter staff can assisting you in advising alternative options for placement. However, cats will not be accepted if brought to the shelter.

For the “Caturday Saturday” adoption special, cats and kittens will be available for $25. Senior cats and long term resident cats will be available for free. All cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and have age appropriate vaccines.
