Irving Animal Services Celebrates the “Cat Days Of Summer”

Why should only dogs have their days? June is dubbed “Adopt-a-Cat Month” because spring and early summer bring lots of kitten births. The staff at the Irving Animal Care Campus (IACC), 4140 Valley View Lane, affectionately refers to this time as the “Cat Days of Summer,” when the shelter will be overflowing with felines.

In response, adoption fees for cats one year and older are being waived for the entire month, and kittens are available for a $50 adoption fee. Regular adoption fees at the IACC range from $70 to $200.

Animals will be:

  • Up-to-date on vaccinations, including rabies if the animal is more than four months old.
  • Spayed or neutered.
  • Given a general dewormer and treated for fleas and ticks.
  • Microchipped and registered with 24PetWatch.
  • Tested for FeLV and FIV if the cat is at least six months old.
  • Given 30 days of 24PetWatch pet insurance, with a valid email address.
  • Given a sample bag of Science Diet food.

The IACC is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. All adoptions must be processed 30 minutes prior to closing.
