Potsdam Animal Shelter in a crisis of cat overpopulation, urging adoptions
Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 6:01 am

POTSDAM -- The Potsdam Humane Society has too many cats, and is asking the public’s help in adopting the felines.

The cat population is beyond numbers that can be housed in good health at the animal shelter, according to Bonnie Boyd, Potsdam Humane Society board member.

PHS is offering cats over the age of four months free to approved adopters.

The cats are already spayed or neutered, up to date on shots, de-wormed, flea treated and micro chipped. “There are many beautiful cats with wonderful personalities,” Boyd said.

Boyd said the North Country is finding the cat population out of control due to the lack of spaying and neutering of cats. “Cats are capable of reproducing at alarming rates!” she said.

PHS offers low income spaying and neutering of pets. Call 265-3199 for details and the date of the next clinic.

The Potsdam Humane Society is a “no kill” shelter, and relies on the public to help them not to have to euthanize healthy cats.

PHS is encouraging people to tell friends and neighbors and get the word out to all the North Country that there are over 100 cats ready to leave the shelter today for a loving forever home.
