Pet of the Week!

JOEY!
Joey is one of my favorite cats at the shelter right now! Why is he still with us? This three-year-old, front-declawed kitty is absolutely adorable. Look at that face! We were told that he is playful and sweet. Joey is the kind of cat that you just want to pick up and hug! He is very squeezable! Most of the people who come to our shelter are looking for a friendly cat that is affectionate and enjoys laps and interaction. Our Joey fits perfectly with this description! Please come meet him. You’re going to love him! His adoption fee has been fully sponsored and will be waived with an approved application.Click here for more info...

CCHS is striving to be proactive in its attempt to place homeless cats in forever homes. We constantly find ourselves full to the maximum with cats. So the Executive Director Susan and the Board of Directors met and talked about solutions to try to fix our problem with the over abundance of homeless cats in our shelter. We have found that having the NO FEE Cat Adoptathons have significantly reduced our cat numbers at CCHS and we have been able to place our cats in record time. We realized that we needed a long-term solution to the problem we face here. CCHS has decided to permanently lower our Cat Adoptions Fees to the lowest amount possible. We realize that the fee we are getting will not come close to covering the expenses of getting the cats ready for adoption, but we are hoping our donations and having small fundraisers for that purpose will offset the amount needed to ready them for adoption.
Here are the new Permanent CCHS Cat Adoption Fees:

Young Adult Cats 6 months to 1 year : $40 Old fee : $50
Cats over 1 year: $20 Old Fee: $50
Cats 6 years and older: NO FEE Old Fee $50
Kitten Fees will remain the same as always: $80

Our cats will always be spayed and neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed before adoption. That will not change even with the lower fees. We are hoping these new fees will keep a constant flow of adopters coming through our doors and make CCHS the hotspot for adoption!
