LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Almost Home Humane Society still has openings for their Beat the Heat event next month.
Beat the Heat is a free spay and neuter program meant to control the stray cat population before the breeding season.
All the appointments for female cats have been filled but there are still 105 appointment openings for male cats to be neutered.
Almost Home's Justin Henry said out of control feral kitten populations make it hard for everyone involved.
"The larger the population gets, the more our resources are strained and then the harder it is for us to get somebody like Cobblepot here, who was a feral cat, into a home because they come in seeing a whole bunch of kittens and not necessarily the adult cats," said Henry. "The more unplanned and unnecessary cats that are in our community, it puts a strain on our resources as well as each city."
Beat the Heat will be Sunday April 8. Pet owners must call ahead to schedule an appointment. The number for Almost Home Humane Society is (765) 474-5222. The cats can be dropped off in the morning and then picked back up at night.
Also, through Saturday March 31, every cat that is adopted will have no adoption fee in exchange for a free will donation.
