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
