Humane Society overloaded with cats, offers free adoptions

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Humane Society has so many cats they're giving them away this weekend.

Since January they've taken in more than 20,000 cats and kittens. They say they haven't had to euthanize healthy cats in seven years, but are dangerously close to doing that now.

So if you're looking for a pet now is the time to adopt.

"We have all kinds of personalities, different breeds, colors at the shelter,” said Ashliegh Goebel of the Arizona Humane Society. “I'm sure that there's one that will fit into your home. We have both affectionate cats, rowdy and rambunctious kittens – anything that you're looking for we have."

The Humane Society is waiving adoption fees for cats through Monday.

To take advantage of this special, limited offer, go to either AHS's Sunnyslope Facility (9226 North 13th Avenue, Phoenix) or Campus for Compassion (1521 West Dobbins Road, Phoenix) anytime from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday, November 20 to Monday, November 23. To make a donation go to
