  • Webster sponsors CCAS ‘vetting’ for cats

    Homes for cats and kittens are one of Carroll County Animal Support’s toughest tasks.

    It is CCAS policy that the animals will be “fully vetted” (meaning they will be either spayed or neutered and have all up-to-date shots) before they are adopted.

    Dog adoptions require both an approved adoption application and an adoption fee.

    As cats and kittens are difficult to get adoption fees for, the group gets donations to have the cat “fully vetted.”

    This ensures that CCAS cats will not be producing more cats.
