The shelter posted yesterday that, because its facilities had met capacity, it would need to find families or foster homes for 100 healthy cats or be forced to euthanize them.

The shelter also said that all cat and kitten adoptions would be reduced from their usual $75 fee to $1 for the entire weekend.

The post has since been shared around 3,5000 times.
