NEW YORK — Cat season is upon us, more than ever before, according to the city’s Animal Care and Control.

Shelters across Manhattan and Brooklyn are overflowing with approximately 10,000 cats – a thousand more than this time last summer.

The staggering number of cats in the City’s shelters has ACC making a plea to New Yorkers to open up their homes and hearts.

In response to the overflow, ACC adoption centers are waiving fees for all cats one year and older.

If you can’t make it down to a shelter, the cats can be viewed online.  ACC will also be holding special events all weekend.
