...and as always for this time of year, we have a lot of fuzzy little babies running around. But along with kitten and puppy season, we've seen another seasonal trend - a decrease in adoptions for the month of May. We need your help to get the word out about HSEC so we can avoid these fluctuations as much as possible. Litters of kittens and puppies often need extra attention and care, and your support is crucial during this time.
The good news is that we're already on track in June to exceed those lower May numbers. So let's focus on the positive and take a look at the critters who found their forever homes in May.
This month we took in 20 cats: 3 returns, 6 surrenders, and 11 transfers. We also took in 22 dogs: 2 abandoned (which is ILLEGAL), 4 returns, 9 surrenders, and 7 transfers.
We often take transfers from the Pitt County Animal Shelter. We're so lucky to work in partnership with them! In fact, just yesterday (June 14th) we were able to participate in an amazing rescue effort with PCAS, Pitt Friends, and individual rescuer Jenny Lee. PCAS was unexpectedly inundated with surrendered animals until there was no more room in the shelter. But between the different animal welfare groups, all of the surrendered animals were saved!
We had 18 adoptions in total during May: 5 adult cats, 6 kittens, 5 adult dogs, and 2 puppies. 7 of these were off-site adoptions. As you can see from our discrepancies between intake and adoption, we're pretty full right now! As much as we love to be surrounded by those adorable little faces, we can't wait to see those numbers drop as pets find their forever homes.
Here are some of the lucky guys who found their homes in May!
