Wisconsin Humane Society offers election deal on kitten adoptions

The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is offering an "election deal" on kitten adoptions.

All kitten adoptions will be 25 percent off at all three Wisconsin Humane Society locations through November 13. All adult cat adoptions fees are waived year-round. In addition, every cat adopter will receive a special "Election Kit" with chocolate, ear plugs, and a chance to win a cat climbing tower.

This deal is being offered to help people ease the stress of the upcoming election.

“Research indicates that having a cat can reduce stress levels and lower blood pressure,” said Angela Speed, vice president of communications at WHS. “You can save a life, feel better and wake up on November 9 feeling awesome, no matter what.”

There are also nearly 540 cats at the Wisconsin Humane Society who need a home. This an increase of 90 cats compared to last year. 

“We suspect that the warm weather may have an influence on the volume of kittens and cats we’re seeing this time of year," said Speed. "The high population puts animals at risk for illness and stress, so we’re hoping for a lot of adoptions in the next week."
