The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast’s shelter is filled to capacity and the intake of cats and dogs continues to climb. To ease the overcrowding, the HSTC is offering cat and kitten adoptions from July 13 through July 31 for just $5. Additionally, the shelter will waive the adoption fees for featured dogs (not all dogs). The normal dog adoption fee is $120; cats, $40. “This is a crazy situation,” said HSTC President and CEO Frank Valente. “It is so hard when we are the only ones taking them all in from Boca Raton to Port St. Lucie.” The HSTC serves as Martin County’s designated animal care and control facility and as such, must accept every animal that is brought to its shelter. Other animal care organizations have the option of selecting only those animals they wish to take in.

Thanks to the generosity of one local company, the animals waiting to be adopted at the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast in Palm City are happier now that their temporary living space is in top condition. Ultimate Washer, Inc., a pressure cleaning business based in Jupiter, recently donated a 4,000 psi pressure washer valued at $1,300. The unit came complete with 50 feet of hose, gun and wand, nozzles, and a chemical injector system. “We very much appreciate Ultimate Washer’s generosity,” said HSTC Director of Operations Candice Veach. “We use it to pressure wash the sidewalks, our kennel area, and our shelter vehicles. It’s very important to us to maintain cleanliness throughout our shelter and this donation makes it easier.”
