• Caley is a very shy cat who is looking for a good home. She is full grown and medically up to date.  She needs someone who wants to give her a nice quiet life, no children please as she isn't very interested in being held. Her adoption fee is $25.

• Sophie is a playful kitten who is good with kids, cats and dogs.  She came to us at a young cat and was cared for by a foster for the first few weeks of her life.  She is strong and healthy, medically up to date, but not yet spayed.  Her adoption fee is $100. 

• Nancy is a kitten who is here with her brother Sid.  They are both playful and loving, medically current, and ready for new homes.  They are not yet spayed or neutered, the adoption fee is $100 for each of them.

I was just wondering why are cats being adopted out, without being fixed, a neighbor of mine adopted a cat 3 months old and than threw out at nine months old, she was not fixed, I took the cat in and had her fixed, that was 5 years ago,.
everyone who adopts a cat might not keep them, so I think that every cat/dog that comes from the humane society should be fixed, don't rely on the owners to do it cause it might never happen, which ends up in more kittens and strays.



I agree.

And what's up with an adoption fee of $100? Seriously? I realize that the animals have been cared for, and I understand that charging something is also important to ensure the person adopting the animal really wants a pet (horror stories about what happens to free kittens are everywhere). But $100 is a lot of money for an animal that hasn't even been neutered or spayed!
