Rescued Cats Spared Euthanization

Of the 35 felines taken from an Idaho home, many are already in permanent or foster homes.

Normally, when authorities remove dozens of cats  from a home  in Pocatello, Idaho, most are euthanized immediately.
But the cats that were removed from a home last week in response to a request from Idahos Department of Health and Welfare had never been outdoors and therefore were considered perfect as  house pets. So now, 13 already have new homes, eight of them are living in temporary foster homes and the remainder are in the custody of the Bannock Humane Society waiting to be adopted.

On Saturday, May 20, from noon to 4 p.m. at the Humane Society office, a special $45 rate for adopting cats will be offered once again in an effort to find homes for the rest of the group.

The adoption fee will include spaying or neutering, testing for diseases, vaccinations and an identification microchip. The usual fee is $85.

A first discounted adoption day was held last Saturday, according to Animal Shelter Manager Mary Remer. The group of cats included mostly females ranging in age from 4 months to 2 years. The majority of the remaining animals are males, Remer said.
