The not-for-profit organization hosted a fundraiser in honor of its 46th birthday.

The shelter currently has about 200 cats.

From food to medical procedures, each one costs the shelter about $65.

"We have a lot of cats that need to be adopted, adult cats, not just kittens, we've got wonderful wonderful adult cats," said Jennifer Reeve from the Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter.

Adopting a kitten costs $40.  Adult cats are $25.
