Kankakee shelter celebrates first 2017 kitten adoption
Catalina the cat became 2017’s first kitten adoption for the Kankakee County Animal Control and Adoption Center (KCAC), a self-funded agency dedicated to saving and improving the lives of animals.
“We have been doing so well with transferring our cats and kittens to our shelter partners that we have not had (to schedule) any of our own adoptions,” KCAC staff said on their Facebook page. “We are happy to announce our very first kitten adoption of 2017. Way to go Catalina! We know you will be adored by your new family.”
KCAC is committed to preventing the spread of rabies, educating the public on animal health and welfare and finding homes for homeless animals, the organization said on its website. Initially designated as a hold and kill facility, the center evolved to become a primary adoption source for local residents. KCAC now offers microchipping and special events as well as regular adoption opportunities.
The agency, currently located at 1270 Stanford Drive in Kankakee, recently announced plans to build a new facility on Route 45/52 south of the 308 exit.
