Now through June 30, the fee for cat adoption will be lowered from $90 to $10, which will include the cost of vaccinations, spay and neuter surgeries, and a microchip that helps identify the cats.

RAS is closed Sundays and select holidays.
Stray and surrendered pets are temporarily housed at the shelter, which also serves as a pet lost-and-found resource, pet adoption center and low-cost spay neuter clinic. In 2016, the organization provided shelter for more than 3,400 cats and dogs.
In addition, the Verona Street Animal Society is dedicated to raising awareness and providing the resources to support the mission of RAS, and, Best Friends Animal Society is a national animal welfare organization that runs lifesaving programs in partnership with more than 1,800 rescue groups and shelters across the country.
