Society took in 99 kittens.  To avoid this situation, the Board and Staff of the Knox County Humane Society are asking for your help. Would you be willing to sponsor spay or neuter surgeries for the month of February?  Your $45.00 surgery sponsorship will be applied to one female cat or two male cats.  The owner will be asked to pay a small fee of $10.00 to cover the remaining costs.  Every dollar will be applied to surgery costs.
