The largest animal rescue group in the state is begging for adopters and all the other rescue groups in the state are similarly overrun. What will it take to get people to spay/neuter their cats??
Cat overpopulation: Public asked to adopt
GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- The Animal Humane Society in the Twin Cities is asking the public to adopt a cat.
The organization says it's overrun with stray cats and kittens that came in over the summer.
Nearly 10,000 cats came in from June through September. So far this year, the Animal Humane Society has received more than 16,000 cats. That's an increase of 6 percent from the same period a year ago.
Warmer weather in the spring and fall is increasing the number of litters produced each year by cats that have not been spayed or neutered.
Humane Society president and CEO Janelle Dixon says the organization has more than 350 cats at its five location ready for adoption right now.
