Emergency Funds are Needed

The Ohio SPCA & Humane Society has been bombarded with cats and kittens arriving at the Adoption Center in Lima. “They are literally dumped outside the shelter doors in boxes. Litters of kittens are simply discarded with no thought to their safety from predators or unkind humans,” states Teresa Landon, Executive Director.  

“We have not turned these helpless animals away. However, the large influx of felines has put a serious strain on our budget and our inventory of medical supplies,” states Landon. So many of the cats and kittens are sick and need treatment beyond routine care which includes vaccinations, worming, disease testing, flea treatment, spaying and neutering, and micro chipping

The calls for help with stray community cats come in daily and we are helping as many as we possibly can. “With over 200 cats and kittens in our adoption center, the Ohio SPCA needs animal lovers to help us continue our lifesaving mission,” states Landon. 

Reduced Adoption Fees 

In addition to monetary donations, adoptive homes are needed. In an effort to make room for cats and kittens in need of help and a safe place, adoption fees will be lowered to $10 from July 11th through July 14th for cats over one-year-old. “Our standard adoption process will be followed which requires an application and contract,” states Landon.

A reduction in adoption fees puts an additional hardship on the shelter budget, but cats must be adopted into new forever homes so hundreds more can be helped. Shelters can rescue and house just so many animals. The public must do their part in solving pet-over population. The solution is simple - Spay and Neuter!

Donations to help off-set adoption fees and purchase medical supplies are tax-deductible and can be made through the Ohio SPCA website (www.ohiospca.org) or via mail: Ohio SPCA & Humane Society, 3606 Elida Rd. Lima, Ohio 45807. 

The no-kill Ohio SPCA is not connected to the ASPCA in NYC or any other SPCA, nor do they receive any government funding.
