Some kitties are looking for a new permanent home in Lawrence.
The Lawrence Humane Society has more than 200 cats at the shelter now. More than 150 are healthy, socialized and ready for homes, so the shelter is putting on a promotion: the first 25 cats 6 months and older that are adopted will be free.
Kayse Aschenbrenner, director of animal welfare, said adopters have to go through an application process to get the cats.
“We have quite a few cats that are still here from 2010, and a couple cats that have been here for almost a year,” she said.
Aschenbrenner said kitten season was starting, but they generally find homes much quicker than older cats.
“People don’t always come in to adopt the older cats,” she said.
Seven cats have been adopted under the promotion, which started Thursday.
“We’re hoping to bring lots of people out who maybe have been waiting to adopt a cat,” Aschenbrenner said.
