Cat rescue waves adoption fees for special event

Homeward Bound Cat Adoptions is hosting an adoption event June 22-26 with all adoption fees waved for adult cats 12 months and older.

The event, held at Homeward Bound’s adoption center at 2675 E. Flamingo Road, will be open from noon to 6 p.m. daily for those interested in finding a furry friend.

“As we start to see an increasing cat population in throughout Las Vegas, which is normal this time of year, we want to be proactive and also help our adult cats find the homes they deserve,” Christi Dineff, executive director for Homeward Bound said in a news release. “We have so many wonderful adult cats at our adoption center, and by waiving fees to help them find loving new homes, we’re making space for the cats and kittens that truly need it — those who have nowhere else to go.”

All cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Adoption fees for kittens start at $150.

Adoption service fees at Homeward Bound are typically over $300 per cat, but donations help cover the cost. Homeward Bound asks those who cannot adopt to donate to help cover adoption fees and daily costs, and to buy supplies for cats in the community through their wish lists on Amazon or Chewy, according to a Homeward Bound news release.
