Fox59 is joining Indianapolis Animal Care and Control in its efforts to battle cat overcrowding.

Earlier this week, Fox59 aired a story about the shelter’s reduced adoption fee of $30.

“Fox59 was gracious enough to help us by doing a story on our Adopt-A-Thon, and the next day we had SEVEN cat adoptions!” said Dawn Contos, Community Outreach Coordinator “That is a rare occurrence for a Tuesday, I can assure you, and we attribute such a large number to the media coverage.”

To help IACC reach its goal of finding homes for the nearly 200 cats awaiting adoption, Fox59 is asking its viewers to share this story with their friends.  At the top of this page, you can share the story on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus or through email by clicking on one of the buttons.

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

Can’t give a cat a new home? You can donate money directly to IACC by going to http://friendsofindyacc.org/donate/ That money will be used to take care of cats at the shelter and in foster homes.

IACC will also accept donations of items. For a full list, check out their wishlist online: http://www.indy.gov/eGov/City/DPS/ACCD/Pages/donations.aspx
