Jun 07, 2013, 06:02 ET from SPCA Florida

LAKELAND, Fla., June 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- To celebrate National Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month SPCA Florida is offering a special deal on "certified pre-owned" cats. SPCA Florida's full service veterinary department has checked all cats from head to tail ensuring they are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. All certified pre-owned cats come with a month of heartworm and flea prevention and are available for a guarantee adoption fee of only $10. To view adoptable animals visit www.spcaflorida.org or visit the Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. at 5850 Brannen Road South in Lakeland.

Every June Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month brings awareness to animal shelters across the U.S. that are inundated with kittens, the result of felines producing more litters beginning in the spring and peaking in summer.  In addition to the adoption special, SPCA Florida is addressing feline overpopulation by offering $25 off spays and neuters at the McClurg Animal Medical Center and implementing a multi-faceted Community Cat Program, which includes free neuter surgeries and vaccinations for free-roaming, un-owned cats.

"We encourage the public to become involved with the welfare and well-being of animals in the community," said SPCA Florida CEO Sean Hawkins. "Whether you adopt a new feline family member, open your home as a kitten foster parent, or bring your neighborhood cats in to our state-of-the-art medical center for surgery to prevent future litters, we need your support to end cat overpopulation in Polk County," Hawkins said.
