LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Loving Paws Animal Center is holding an adoption drive to help offload surplus cats. The center is over capacity and cannot accept any more cats, having to decline rescues.
The drive was originally happening on Sept. 25 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. and on Sept. 26 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Pet Supplies Plus store at 311 Sagamore Parkway North.
It has now been extended through Thursday, Sept. 30 operating until 2 p.m.
Food, prizes including reduced adoption fees and of course cats will all be on hand. Many of their cats are special needs. Loving Paws Animal Center founder Teresa Fee says they like to take those in, but they can be in a shelter for a while.
"They just tend to take up a little more space for longer periods of time," Fee said.
Fee hopes meeting the cats in person will encourage them to adopt.
"We are really hoping that this event will really get people in here and find their furry friend," Fee said.
