KittyPalooza drums up cat adoptions


GREEN BAY - A local humane society held a music inspired event to help increase cat adoptions.

The Bay Area Humane Society held "KittyPalooza" Saturday, hoping to find cats permanent homes.

The first-time event featured feline-themed musical acts such as The Band Purry and Justin Timberlap.

The Green Bay facility usually sees a spike in cats during the summer months, but it's now at full cat capacity.

The idea of the event is for cats to get adopted, but it is also about the importance of spaying and neutering animals.

"There are so many homeless and unwanted pets already out in the community. Just alone here, we get a lot of cats in every single day, and a lot of people don't realize or are aware of spaying and neutering and adoption is quite affordable," said Oliva Webster with the Bay Area Humane Society.

Only a couple of hours into the event, as many as 12 cats were adopted.

Cat adoptions during KittyPalooza cost $40.
