Animal rescue group Macon Purrs N Paws announced Monday it must reduce the number of animals at its Rocky Creek Road shelter by 50 animals in the next few days.
Anne Brennaman, director of the organization, said the shelter is battling ventilation problems at its site in the Fall Line Plaza shopping center.
“We’ve been in touch with the state Department of Agriculture about the (ventilation) problem, but before we can do anything about that, we have to do something about all these cats that we’ve taken in from Animal Control, owner surrenders and (those) left at our door in boxes,” Brennaman said.
To get more animals adopted, Purrs N Paws is lowering the adoption rates, which are: $50 for a cat or kitten, and $75 for two black cats or kittens, which are harder to adopt. In addition, anyone 55 or older can adopt a cat that’s at least 2 years old for $20 as part of the organization’s “Seniors for Seniors” program.
The Purrs N Paws shelter, at 1546 Rocky Creek Road, will be open from 1-4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays through the end of June.
