Marin Humane Society Lowers Adoption Fees


The Marin Humane Society temporarily reduced feline adoption fees in response to a nearly 20% decrease in cat and kitten adoptions. Feline adoption fees are reduced by 50% during a month-long adopt-a-thon that runs through November 30. The Adoption Center is open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The organization reports that 681 cats have been adopted so far in 2011, compared to 846 for the same period in 2010. “We hope that these reduced adoption fees will inspire people to adopt,” says Tricia Breen, director of animal care and adoptions. “From energetic kittens to mellow adults, a cat in your life can add a special blend of warmth and companionship, especially during the cooler winter season.”

Adopt-a-thon Fees
Cats: $50 (from $100)
