Remember the old Rodgers and Hammerstein hit "June is Bustin' Out All Over"? Well, that song title is an apt description for what's happening at the Yavapai Humane Society (YHS) this month. We have dozens of kittens coming in from across Yavapai County.

Adopt a Cat Month YHS is joining the rest of the nation in recognizing June as "Adopt a Cat Month," and we want to make adopting a cat or a kitten as easy as possible. During the month of June, YHS is letting you pick your price for any cat or kitten.

That's right, it's YHS' Certified Pre-Owned Cat (and kitten) Sale - Zero Down, Zero Percent Financing, and No Payments! Each adoption includes a nose to tail multi-point inspection (including spay/neuter and vaccinations) and catjack (microchip). This is over a $400 value - but this month you can pick your own price. (Some testing fees may apply; and you are asked to make a small donation in honor of your new feline family member.)

The month of June is the purrfect time for cat lovers to think about opening their hearts to welcome a new fur baby into their home. Each spring during "kitten season," thousands of newborn kittens join the millions of cats already in shelters across the country. That means YHS has over a hundred cute, cuddly newborns, in addition to all the mellow, older cats and everything in between.

YHS is ready to help you adopt your very first cat or assist you in finding a new friend for another beloved cat at both Betty's Cattery located at YHS on 1625 Sundog Ranch Road in Prescott or at the Prescott Petsmart store on Highway 69.

For folks already planning to adopt a cat this month, why not consider adopting two kitties? Kittens get bored and lonely when their human companions are not available. Two will keep each other company as they play together and expend some of that boundless kitten energy.

The good news is that once you pick one your heart will quickly be won over.

Special Spay/Neuter Promotion

To help stem the tide so we'll see fewer homeless kittens next year, YHS is also promoting a spay/neuter special this month. When you make an appointment to have your female cat spayed, YHS will neuter your male cat for free.

Call the YHS Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic at 771-0547 for more information or to schedule an appointment. YHS' affordable spay/neuter and wellness services are a public service offered to everyone. In this difficult economy, it's a great way to save money and help support the Yavapai Humane Society mission to promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of our pets. Our clinic is state-of-the-art, clean and professional. Call for a low-cost spay/neuter appointment today or drop by our vaccination clinic any Friday.

Friday Walk-in Clinic

YHS hosts a walk-in vaccination clinic every Friday at the Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic. The Clinic is located at 2989 Centerpointe East in Prescott; this is not the same location as the YHS shelter. No appointment is necessary for the Friday Vaccination Clinic

Vaccinations and other services can also be done at the time of a scheduled surgery Tuesday through Thursday.

Friday wellness services include: Toe Nail Trim for $5-$10; Canine Heartworm Testing for $27; Microchipping $20; most vaccinations, including rattlesnake vaccinations, are only $16; and we also sell Heartgard heartworm preventative and Frontline Plus flea and tick preventative. Summer time is parasite time; now is the time to protect your pets from fleas and ticks.

Ed Boks is the executive director of the Yavapai Humane Society. He can be reached at eboks@yavapaihumane.org or by calling 445-2666, ext. 21.
