Between now and Sunday, visitors to Blue Mountain Humane Society can choose the price they pay to adopt an eligible cat during the Name Your Price sale.

All adoptable felines, from kittens to seniors, are available during the sale. Each cat’s remaining adoption fees will be underwritten by generous supporters of BMHS in hopes more cats will find forever homes this fall, according to a release.

“We have twice the number of cats we usually have at this time of year” said Maria Torres, operations coordinator of BMHS “They deserve to spend these months with their new families,”

The animal shelter at 7 E. George St. currently has more than 48 cats available for adoption.

BMHS is open seven days a week, from noon-6 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday.

For more information, contact Maria at or call the shelter at 509-525-2452.
