FARMINGTON – June is “Adopt a Shelter Cat Month” and from June 6 to 18 all of the Franklin County Animal Shelter adult cats will be considered “free to a good home.”

Last year the shelter had two weeks of free adult cat adoptions and due to the success, staff was able to place 34 cats into homes.

All potential adopters will still be required to go through the mandatory adoption process, which includes filling out a pre-adoption form and at least a 24-hour waiting period in which information can be verified.

Those who rent are encouraged to bring the landlord’s name and number and/or a copy of the lease to the shelter.

People who have other cats or dogs at home should keep in mind that they must be spayed or neutered and up to date on at least a rabies vaccine before adopting. Bringing current vet records will speed up the adoption process.

All applications will be on a “first-come, first-served” basis, and any application that is filled out (and eventually approved) from June 6 to 18 will fall into the free cat category.
