Hundreds of cats adopted from the Humane Society

MISHAWAKA, Ind. --- Nearly 200 cats from the St. Joseph County Humane Society were adopted Saturday. 

Lines of people filled the Human Society for a free cat adoption Saturday.

Officials say a lot of people can't afford cats because of the cost of spaying and neuturing.

All the cats that could be adopted Saturday were ready to go home and already fixed.

"We have adopted more than 150 cats today, they have all gone to very good homes. We are just thrilled because we had so many and now we can have another group get spayed and neutered and put them in our adoption and we might just do this again. This has been so successful and people have been so gracious," said Carol Ecker, the Executive Director of The Humane Society of St. Joseph County.

If you would like to adopt a cat, you can still do so at the Humane Society or you can donate cat and kitten food.
