Kelley Animal Shelter at capacity, waiving adoption fees for cats in September

News Release, Calvert County Public Information Office

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Sept. 11, 2019 – The Linda L. Kelley Animal Shelter is over capacity for cats and is waiving adoption fees for cats and kittens through the end of September.

“Our goal is to find loving homes for as many cats as we possibly can,” said Public Safety Director Jackie Vaughan. “We are waiving adoption fees for cats in an effort to ensure our animals find good families, but also to create room for more animals who need our help.”

Cats of all ages and personalities are available for adoption, including kittens born during the warm summer months, known as “kitten season.” Regular adoption procedures still apply.

If citizens are not able to keep an indoor cat, the animal shelter offers the “Linda’s Working Cats” program to place cats who cannot be placed in a home setting. A working cat is an under-socialized outdoor cat who can provide natural pest control on a property. Visit online to learn more about the program.

The Linda L. Kelley Animal Shelter is an open admission animal shelter managed by the Animal Shelter Division of the Calvert County Department of Public Safety. The shelter is located at 5055 Hallowing Point Road in Prince Frederick. For more information about adopting from the Linda L. Kelley Animal Shelter visit www.CalvertCountyAnimalShelter.com.


The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
