Celebrate “Whisker Wednesday” and adopt a cat for free.

Celebrate “Whisker Wednesday” and adopt a cat for free.


The Independence Animal Shelter will wave its adoption fee for all cats Wednesday. The shelter will open for adoptions at 11 a.m.


All pets are altered, heartworm tested, vaccinated and microchipped before adoption.


The shelter is competing in the ASPCA Save More Lives challenge. The shelter that places the most dogs, cats, puppies and kittens in homes will win a $100,000 grant.


Here, that money would go back into the shelter’s low-cost spay and neuter program.


The Independence Animal Shelter is at 875 Vista Drive. Follow it on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/paws2adopt.
