Reduced Adoption Fees for Longest CBHS Cat Residents

There are many wonderful cats available for adoption at CBHS.  However, some have been waiting for a home MUCH longer than others.  That’s why now through, Friday, October 23rd, our longest cat residents who have lived with us since 2014, have an adoption fee of just $20.14!

These cats want to find loving homes just as much as any other cat.  Adopt today, and change their lives forever.  Click here to view their individual profiles and bios, and here to fill out an adoption application.

CBHS Celebrates National Black Cat Day…All Week!

It should come as no surprise that the Cedar Bend Humane Society has a LOT of cats waiting for homes.  And black cats are certainly no exception.

Maybe it’s just a coincidence, or maybe it’s superstition, but black cats are less than half as likely to get adopted from shelters as cats of other colors.

Monday, August 17 was National Black Cat Appreciation Day.  Here at CBHS, we think our black cats deserve to be celebrated all WEEK, so we’re extending our promotion through the weekend.

From now until Sunday, bring in a qualifying wet or dry cat food donation, and we’ll waive the adoption fee for any black or partially black kitty!  Kittens too young to have been altered will still include a refundable $50 spay/neuter deposit.

We will accept any brand of wet food, but are specifically looking for Iams, Science Diet, and Purina One dry food.
