With an overflow of felines, Animal Care & Control of NYC has lowered fees for cat and kitten adoptions through Sunday.

The adoption center currently has about 450 cats in need of homes.

April through September, dubbed "kitten season" by AC&C, is a particularly busy season for the organization. Last summer, the shelter took in nearly 6,000 cats.


Adoption fees, normally $25 to $50 for adult cats and $75 for kittens less than six months old, have been lowered to $5 for cats and $20 for kittens through Sunday.
