HAGERSTOWN - The Humane Society of Washington County is offering a special adoption fee for cats and kittens to help alleviate an overcrowding problem at the facility.
Paul Miller, the humane society's executive director, said people can adopt two cats for $70.
According to humane society literature, $70 is the regular rate to adopt one cat.
"It's not unusual at this time of year to see 20 (cats) a day coming in," he said. "In August, we'll probably move up to the 30-to-50 range."
The adoption fee includes a health check, the first set of vaccinations, and spaying or neutering, Miller said.
"I think for the money it's a great deal," he said. "Obviously, for the cat, it's a wonderful thing to happen."
Debbie Porterfield, manager of animal care and customer service at the humane society, said Friday that the facility had about 160 cats and kittens with only 74 units to house them.
