SPCA: Remy & many others ready for adoption

SPCA: Remy

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - It's full-blown kitten season at the Jefferson County SPCA.

Operations manager Katelynn Drohan brought one of them, Remy, with her to the 7News studio.

He's 2 months old and very active. He purrs a lot and is ready to be adopted.

Drohan says even though the staff wants to, the SPCA can't take in every stray. The shelter can only safely hold 90 cats out of the 10,000 strays in Jefferson County alone.

Incoming cats have to be on a seven-day vaccination hold to keep the entire shelter population safe.

The SPCA has eight or nine dogs right now, she says, but 20 more dogs are coming in from Project Freedom Ride on Wednesday.

For more information on adopting an animal, volunteering, becoming a member, or donating, call the shelter at 315-782-3260.
