May marks the month when cats and kittens come into the Lycoming County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals by the dozen.
The shelter is celebrating Cinco de Meow on May 5, by kicking off its adult cat adoption efforts by offering adoptions for a donation.
Also on this day, adopters will receive a coupon for 10 percent off SPCA gift shop purchases.
The adoption special will take place from May 5 through August.
Other specials the shelter is offering is two kittens may be adopted for the price of one.
Each cat adoption includes the initial shots, flea treatment, lifetime microchip identification and one-year registration; 30 days free health insurance with a valid email; spaying or neutering; a handy cardboard carrier; and a loving four-legged companion.
"Our staff begins to feel overwhelmed with all the cats and kittens that are brought to the shelter," said Victoria Stryker, executive director. "Since there are no laws in Pennsylvania about cats at large, it becomes a problem in dealing with unwanted strays. We want to encourage anyone considering a new pet to visit our shelter at 2805 Reach Road and adopt a new four-legged family member."
She said cats come in many sizes and colors - not to mention a myriad of "purr-sonalities" - and they are easy to care for with a clean litter box, fresh food, water and love.
