Regina Humane Society overwhelmed with adoptable cats

The Regina Humane Society (RHS) recently saw more than 30 cats come in over two days. The shelter described the situation as critical.

The Regina Humane Society is welcoming people into the shelter by day-of appointments only. Those interested in visiting with the animals can call the RHS between 8 and 10 a.m. and leave a message with contact information. Shelter staff will contact each person in the order their call was received to schedule an appointment for later that day.

For those not interested in adoption, there are still a variety of ways to assist. Foster families are needed to provide support to the Regina Humane Society by caring for animals who are too young to be adopted, animals who are recovering from illness or injury and by helping to socialize shy animals. Adoption applications can be filled out on the RHS website.

Monetary donations are also accepted in person, by phone, by mail or online.
