Humane Society adopting cats and kittens again

TUCSON (Tucson News Now) - The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is resuming adoptions of cats and kittens after containing a viral outbreak.

The Society will have a limited number of cats and kittens available for adoption at the main shelter and all off-site locations. These cats have been isolated and monitored at the main shelter, and are showing no further signs of calcivirus, a respirator infections. 

Please call the shelter or stores to be sure there are cats or kittens at that location:

Shelter, 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd.: 327-6088
PAWSH Park Place: 881-7406
PAWSH La Encantada: 327-6577
PetSmart at River/Orange Grove: 742-1296

The HSSA says it will also begin accepting both owner-release and stray cats by appointment only, starting Saturday, Dec. 22, at the main shelter.  To make an appointment, please call 327-6088, ext. 100.

Society workers say if you are relinquishing a cat it must be restrained in a crate or carrier. Staff must be able to safely handle the animal. Cats brought in traps will not be accepted for relinquishment.
