Animal program has half-off cat adoptions in June


As part of the National Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month, ACTion Programs for Animals (APA) of Las Cruces is offering half-off adoption fees for kittens and cats in June, APA said in a news release.

 “If anyone is ready to welcome an adorable kitten or cat into their home, we encourage you to take advantage of our low adoption fee this month and consider adding one of our felines to your family,” APA Executive Director Michel Meunier said. “June is the start of ‘kitten season,’ when large litters of kittens are born and often end up in animal shelters. Please help us in our efforts of making the Las Cruces and surrounding area a no-kill community.”

 To meet APA’s adoptable kittens and cats, visit the APA adoption center at 537 N. Solano Drive 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday or call 575-571-4654 to schedule an appointment. Adoptable animals may also be viewed at apalascruces.org.

For more information, text 575-644-0505, leave a message at 575-571-4654 or email mail@apalascruces.org.

APA is a progressive animal welfare organization seeking to improve the quality of life for companion animals in Doña Ana County and greatly reduce the number of unwanted animals impounded and euthanized at the municipal shelter as well as keep people and their pets together. Since May 2012, APA has rescued more than 5,800 animals.
