Adopt a Summit County cat in June

Daily News staff report

June is Adopt a Shelter Cat month at the Summit County Animal Shelter. While many Summit County residents enjoy their canine companions, there is much to be said for felines. Although most cats come across as “stand-offish” when they need alone time, they make good pets. Each cat’s personality is unique, depending on its breed and background.

Currently, the shelter has 19 cats up for adoption. Some of those cats would do best as the only pet in the house, while others will thrive alongside other cats, dogs and children. Any cat adopted during the month of June will receive a discount on the adoption fee. All cats are spayed or neutered, have current vaccinations and are microchipped. Shelter employees are able to share the histories and backgrounds of many of the available cats, which were given up by previous owners. By working with the stray cats, the shelter employees are able to share their observations with potential adopters. The shelter encourages interested people to look into the many health benefits of owning a cat, including lower blood pressure and reduction of depression, loneliness and stress. To learn more, contact the Animal Shelter at (970) 668-3230 or stop by for a visit at 58 Nancy’s Place, Frisco.
