Dodge County Humane Society adoption counselor Dawn Purser holds Meowza, a 7-year-old brown tabby male, who will have his adoption fee waived along with that of many of the cats that were brought in by the Beaver Dam Police on Wednesday night. A woman in Beaver Dam had been housing the stray cats.

JUNEAU – The Dodge County Humane Society is waiving adoption fees on cats after a second group of cats were delivered from a Beaver Dam home on Wednesday.

The Beaver Dam Police Department has delivered two groups of cats from a Beaver Dam home over the last month. According to the Beaver Dam Police Department briefing, the woman in a home in the 1000 block of North Spring Street admitted to taking in stray cats and 13 adult cats, one kitten and an adult dog were removed from the home.

The woman was warned that she would be cited if she continues to take animals into the home.

Dodge County Humane Society adoption counselor Dawn Purser said that the first group of animals came from the home on July 11. In total 27 animals were removed from the home.

“A few of them are pregnant,” Purser said, who added that they were at the veterinarians on Thursday afternoon to be checked over and make sure they are all healthy.

Purser said she wasn’t sure how many of the cats were actually stray cats and that many of them were very friendly.

The shelter is at capacity for cats, Purser said. The Humane Society is looking for foster homes for the cats. Anyone wanting to foster the cats may come to the shelter, N6839 Highway 26, and fill out an application.

“We just want to make sure they are good with animals and stable enough to foster,” Purser said, who is also the foster care coordinator for the shelter.

Purser keeps in touch with the foster homes and is available by texts or calls if there are any questions. In addition, the humane society covers all the costs associated with the cats.

Any other donations for the animals can also be dropped off at the shelter, Purser said.

In addition to help many of the cats at the humane society find their forever home, Purser said they are waving the adoption fee right now for cats over the age of six months.

The humane society is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m.
