    City of Great Falls Montana

    In June the Shelter will be running a “9 Lives for $9” adoption promotion. All adult cats can be adopted for $9! The adoption fee includes a rabies shot, vaccinations, FIV Combo Test, a nametag, a microchip and the cost of spaying/neutering your cat.  Cats tend to be rather lucky  and have the ability to survive adversity. This has created the legend that they actually have nine lives! However, none of their 9 lives should be spent in a shelter – help save a life by adopting a cat this month.
