Indianapolis Animal Care and Control is running out of room after this spring’s boom in the cat population. Friends of the shelter are now pitching in to help those cats find new homes.

Through the end of this month, the adoption fee will be just $30. That fee covers spay or neuter surgery, micro-chipping with registration, vaccines and special tests.

“We have nearly 200 cats that are here available at the shelter available for adoption and nearly 200 that are in foster homes,” said Dan Shackle with IACC.

IACC has set a goal of 200 cat adoptions for this month. So far, only 19 cats have been adopted.
