  • Post category:News

When you run an adoption center, agency or even organization, there’s a real need to look out for your fellow feline. In this case, the Kansas Humane Society has had to stop a cat adoption. This is all because the virus needs to be secured away safely. It’s necessary to make sure that you quarantine cats safely. As of today the KHS has indeed identified that a couple of their cats at a facility had recently tested positive for such a contagious virus. The KHS has said themselves that “Out of an abundance of caution, we will temporarily stop intakes and adoptions of all cats to ensure the health and safety of the pets in our care as well as those in the community.”

This in specific is not going to necessarily affect dogs. You can still adopt dogs and intake dogs as well. Additionally, the KHS states how they’ll get guidance from the veterinary staff. The KHS is going to monitor the situation while providing updates as it’s safe for cat adoptions to continue.

However, the KHS are reaching out to individuals for those who are looking to have an appointment to take in a cat and reschedule those appointments.

When you look at the Kansas Humane Society, over there at 3313 Hillside Street, you’ll see that they are choosing o celebrate the good times with a “Howl-O-Ween” extravaganza on Sunday October 30th, from 2pm to 4pm. This is all in promotion of inviting eager trick or treaters over to dress up and grab candy from their lobby. Meanwhile, dogs will be welcome to say hello as the event is open and free to the public.

Earlier that day, the Kansas Humane Society will also host a Scholastic Book Fair. It’s these type of events that make it so amazing to live in this town. Because the fellow Wichitans can be treated to holiday parties, book fairs and even open adoption sprees. What’s there not to love? It’s simply so kind, and so supportive.

Chances are, those cats are going to be just fine. What could possibly happen to them that the veterinarians can’t handle? At least they caught it early. That’s what matters. All how cats can be saved from the absolute danger of negligence. Adoptions are important to keep going for the good of the local animal life. So surely the adoptions will start back up before long.

What does it take to adopt a cat?

Typically, cat adoption fees can vary in prices from $15 to $200 for cats from 1-7 years old while kittens can range from $125 to $200 for kittens. The adoption fee for every cat is usually added to every bio. What should be included are spay and neuter surgeries, medical examinations, age-appropriate vaccinations, flea treatment and deworming and microchip and registration fee. All while using post-adoption medical exam with a participating veterinary clinic. There has been additional treatment needed while in care, so don’t be surprised in that instance.

These are all things you’d have to deal with when cat adoption is opened up again.
