Local shelter holds kitten adopt-a-thon
Alayna Krey, 11, of Alpena, snuggles a kitten at Saturday’s kitten adopt-a-thon for the Second Chance Animal Shelter in Alpena. The kitten — one of 25 or 30 cats fostered out under the shelter’s supervision at any given time – went home with Krey, a regular adopter. Second Chance — formerly the Alpena County Animal Facility — sent eight kittens to new homes by mid-afternoon Saturday, adding to the almost 300 adoptions through the organization in the past two-plus years. The organization is holding monthly adoption events until its shelter building opens, hopefully sometime this fall.
