Wanted: homes for vetted and fixed barn cats

The nonprofit group Volunteers for Animals is trying to put together a list of local homes willing to take in barn cats.

From time to time, they get cats that would not fit well into a home as pets, and are most likely part feral. All cats are vetted, spay/neutered.

If you are able to take in one or two, please let them know. It would really help them out in a crunch.

To contact the volunteers, who work in partnership with the county animal shelter, contact them at <www.vol4animals.org> or write to:

Holiday adoptions at animal shelter totaled 225

The Volunteers for Animals at the Genesee County Animal Shelter announced today the results of their 2011 Home 4 the Holidays adoption campaign.

A total of 225 cats and dogs got a real forever home thanks to the generosity and compassion of those who wanted their true friendship.

Nonetheless, the numbers fell short of the goals set for the adoption of adult animals. The adoption of puppies and kittens exceeded goals, which is, of course, fabulous. Here's the breakdown of goals vs. actual adoptions:

  • Dogs: 80 / 62
  • Puppies: 10 / 15
  • Cats: 50 / 29
  • Kittens: 90 / 119

The volunteers say "Thanks to everyone who came out to adopt, help spread the word and stopped in with donations. We greatly appreciate the community's support."

There are more adorable and beloved companions to be found at the shelter. Thus, no need to wait until the 2012 holidays to bring one home. Come on down!
