The Lee County Sheriff’s Office and Lee County Domestic Animal Services are hosting the Cat-A-Pawlooza adoption event, which features various cats in need of loving homes.

Given the increased kitten intakes at shelters, Thursday’s event aims to unite feline companions with caring families and promote responsible pet adoption.

According to Shelter Animals Count, kitten intakes increase beginning in March, with the highest number of intakes in May and June.

Kitten intakes have increased by 81,000 kittens since 2019. In 2019, kittens only accounted for 44% of total cat intakes, while in 2023, they made up 47%. 

Shelter Animals Count estimated that 1.58 million of the 3.3 million cats that entered organizations in 2023 were younger than five months old.

If you’re looking for a new furry friend, find your purr-fect match at 10801 Corkscrew Rd., Suite 190, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday.
