Now is the best time to adopt a cat or kitten.

Now is the best time to adopt a cat or kitten.

The largest no-kill cat rescue in Middle Georgia has suffered more than its share of bad luck recently, and they're hoping for some help from the community to give at least 50 cats and kittens a loving, permanent home.

Only a few of the animals pulled into rescue by MPNP already have their shots or are spayed or neutered, and forget flea prevention – owners callous enough to dump their pets to die at the pound aren't likely to care about fleas, heartworms or rabies. Like every other rescue, MPNP pays for complete vetting of the animals themselves, using money donated to the rescue, funds collected for adoption fees and, sometimes, money from their own pockets.
