Cats need permanent homes

With the Freeborn County Humane Society filled to capacity, the nonprofit organization’s leadership is looking to find some good homes for some of their feline friends.
Humane Society volunteer Char Butterfield said at last count there were more than 50 cats and kittens at the shelter, with between two and six cats per cage.
“I’ve had to turn people away left and right,” Butterfield said of people who are wanting to turn cats into the organization.
Among the cats currently at the shelter, there are both mature cats and kittens. The cats are all litter-trained, up to date on shots and altered, she said.
Butterfield encouraged people to come in and interact with the cats if they are considering adopting one.
“It’s easy to come and look at the cats, but once you actually start interacting with them, you find that each one of them has their own distinctive personality,” she said.
People should call in advance before stopping to look at the animals.
The shelter is open from 1 to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays for visiting hours, Butterfield said.
For information on adopting any of the cats, contact the Humane Society at 377-8501 or email@example.com. The organization’s website is at www.hsffc.org.
