Cat overpopulation a concern at local humane society

It's kitten season at shelters across Michiana. This is the time of year when they see a feline frenzy and they hope you can help them find good homes.

Thursday on 16 Morning News, Elkhart County Humane Society board president Stephanie Krol joined us with her friend, Quill.

Quill is a 2-year-old long-haired male cat who was brought in as a stray last summer.

“Before we get this influx of kittens in we really want to find these older cats a home,” said Krol. “Our statistic is for every three cats, we have one dog, and that’s not a normal for animal shelters. We really have a cat overpopulation problem.”

Adoption fees are $80 which includes initial vaccines and a microchip.

If you’re interested in adopting you can contact the Elkhart County Humane Society at (574) 848-4225 or visit their shelter at 54687 County Road 19 in Bristol. They are in need of monetary donations to help care for the animals.
