MADISON, Wis. - The colder weather means there are more cats at the Dane County Humane Society.
On average, the shelter houses up to 50 cats, but with the influx of strays and kittens, the shelter is overflowing.
Gayle Viney with the DCHS said there are 100 cats and 30 kittens ready to be adopted.
Adoption fees were dropped by 85 percent to help families find a perfect new pet.
"Adult cats (are) only $5. Kittens (are) only $20. It's perfect, it's a great time. We've got the cutest little kittens and adult cats that just love to sit on your lap. Get an adult cat if you want to see their personality or get a kitten if you want a playful playmate," Viney said.
The adoption fees cover spay and neuter surgeries and microchipping.
Reduced adoption fees at the DCHS run through Sunday.
