McKamey Animal Center Flies 64 Kittens to New Homes

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Sixty four kittens from McKamey Animal Center were shipped out this morning to their new homes. McKamey and the ASPCA partnered to find adoptive homes for the kittens.

The felines flew out of the Chattanooga Airport to their new homes in Massachusetts. According to McKamey, this helps bring animals to a place that doesn’t have a large supply, while freeing up some of their space.

Inga Fricke, Executive Director at McKamey Animal Center says, “We have a disparity in the country where by certain areas particularly in the south and mid west have an overabundance of animals… as opposed to the northeast and northwest where they generally have a longer history of a very advanced spade, neuter infrastructure and very often its rare for them to get puppies or kittens throughout the year.”

Two Dozen dogs are also scheduled for transportation later this week into their new homes. McKamey Animal Center still has plenty of animals up for foster and adoption.
