Thursday is free cat day at Kitsap Humane Society in Silverdale. KHS will be waiving all adoption fees for cats 6 months and older.

KHS says summer is typically the busiest time for shelters and they are no exception, with many more pets in need of homes. In the last month (July 12 to August 12), they have taken in 318 cats and kittens.

Cats come to the shelter in a variety ways and for a variety of reasons. For example, Georgia, a tabby, was brought in when her owner passed away.

She has been waiting for a new home for months. KHS says she is very sweet and loving.

Every adopted cat at KHS comes up-to-date on vaccinations, treated for fleas, dewormed, microchipped, and spayed or neutered.

Each cat costs KHS $30 to care for, so while the adoption fees are waived, staff still suggests a donation of any amount to help cover these costs.

KHS is located at 9167 Dickey RD NW in Silverdale. Phone (360) 692-6977

The shelter will be open from 12pm to 6:30pm, with adoption counsels closing at 5:30pm. A donation of $30 is suggested to cover the cost of the animal's microchip.
