A Lifesaving Animal Shelter
This could be the title of the beautiful floor-to-ceiling mural in our Cat Community Room!
Newly painted by local artist, Rebecca Ward, and made possible through the generosity of a LCHS Board member, this painting graces the rear wall of the first room on the left as you enter the animal shelter.
Seeing the startled face of the comical, mischievous feline, whose plot to feast on two goldfish has failed, evokes a laugh from every visitor at the shelter! In fact, we think that our mural is worthy of display in the Metropolitan Museum of Art!!
So come visit, see our wonderful pets and...have a laugh or two!
An average cat has 1-8 kittens per litter and 2-3 litters per year. During her productive life, one female cat could have more than 100 kittens. A single pair of cats and their kittens can produce as many as 420,000 kittens in just 7 years.
Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.9 million are dogs and 3.4 million are cats.
It's impossible to determine how many stray dogs and cats live in the United States. Estimates for cats alone range up to 70 million. Only 10% of the animals received by shelters have been spayed or neutered.
Spay and Neuter Your Pets
Let's celebrate the wonderful companionship of our feline friends!
June is ADOPT-A-SHELTER-CAT-MONTH. We use this month to purr and meow about the beauty of cats. We also take this time to remind our readers of the many marvelous cats presently in our shelter and of millions of cats across our country that are in shelters like ours patiently awaiting their forever homes. Please help us spread the word!
If you have a cat that you adopted from the Lehigh County Humane Society, we'd love to hear from you! Simply send a photo in the month of June with your cat's name and the year of his/her adoption to 640 Dixon Street Allentown, PA 18103 or email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
