HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

If you have been looking to adopt a kitten, there is no better time than now to do it.

The Southern Pines Animal Shelter has seen a large influx of kittens in the past few days and now their kitten cottage is over flowing. The cottage typically can hold 20 and they have 45 that are waiting to be adopted.

On Friday and Saturday adoption fees have been reduced $25 to $50 for the kittens. The Keg and Barrel on Hardy Street in Hattiesburg is throwing in an added incentive. Anyone who adopts one of the kittens over the two days will receive a $50 gift certificate to the restaurant.  The kittens will be available both Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Shelter Manager Lara Hudson says this time of year is the season where they see many unwanted kittens brought to the shelter. She wants to remind everyone of the importance of getting their pets spayed or neutered to help keep the unwanted pet population down.

The Southern Pines Spay and Neuter Clinic on Hardy Street offers low cost spay and neuter surgery. Thanks to a grant from Pet Smart Charities, Lamar County residents can get the surgery done for what they can afford to pay.
