The Baltimore 500 roars on

Baltimore area animals shelters are zooming right along in their quest to find homes for 500 cats in the month of June.

Adoption fees for cats and kittens are being waived for the entire month.

In the first ten days, 178 cats were adopted, according to the member shelters of the Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance — Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS), the Maryland SPCA and the Humane Society of Baltimore County.

The alliance has created a special website, Baltimore500.org, with information about the campaign.

In addition to the waived adoption fee, six local veterinary clinics are offering free exams for cats and kittens adopted at participating shelters in June.

“This is a life saving campaign and we are heartened by the display of caring by the residents of the Baltimore area. Our shelter has been crowded with people interested in adopting cats and kittens,” said Frank Branchini, Volunteer and Events Coordinator for BARCS. “BARCS is encouraging people who already have cats to consider adopting a second cat or kitten as a playmate.”

Cats and kittens adopted from BARCS are spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and bordatella, de-wormed, Felv tested, and provided with a flea preventative, a general examination, a food sample, and a month of free health insurance.

The participating shelters are:

Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS), 301 Stockholm Street, Baltimore, 410 396-4695

The Maryland SPCA, 3300 Falls Road, Baltimore, 410 235-8826

Baltimore Humane Society, 1601 Nicodemus Road, Reisterstown, 410 833-8848
