Fulton County Animal Services is waiving its adoption fee on cats to free up space in a shelter overrun with them.
The county has room for 90 cats at a time but currently has 175. It’s waiving the adoption fee for all cats and kittens through Aug. 10 to save as many lives as possible.
Potential adopters will be screened to ensure animals are placed in good homes. At no cost, the cats will be spayed or neutered, microchipped and have all vaccinations. To view cats available for adoption visit www.fultonanimalservices.com.
An economy that sent more people to the workforce instead of the classroom, tougher requirements for financial aid, and a higher bar for admissions are among the factors that contributed to a drop in enrollment at the state’s public colleges and universities for the second year in a row.
