Inflation is more than a pet peeve for Lincoln cat shelter

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The Cat Home in Lincoln has noticed the consequences of inflation.

The volunteer shelter has its fingers full. With increasing price ranges, the price tag of litter isn’t the only detail hurting it.

The fuel charges actually have affected us,” said board member and medical coordinator Christine Nieman. “We have cats that need to go to the vet, we have volunteers that are coming in, and all of that managing back and forth, you know, not everyone lives here in the community, so often it is quite a commute for them.”

Even though other shelters are dealing with much more and far more individuals giving up their animals thanks to inflation, that is very little new at The Cat Dwelling.

“We truly have not had an increase in ingestion requests,” Nieman explained. “It’s really weighty this time of year in any case just simply because of the kitten time.”

Since The Cat Property is a no-get rid of shelter, volunteers generally refer cat homeowners who sense they cannot assistance their pets any longer to a handful of methods, anything that may perhaps help numerous pet homeowners for the duration of a time of inflation.

“There’s a couple,” Nieman claimed. “There is the Coalition for Pet Security that sometimes can support. Also, the Lincoln Animal Ambassadors is one that we refer to quite a little bit.”

If you or another person you know is struggling to guidance a pet, Nieman reported, it is significant to know you have other solutions.

“Really the greatest point for the cats is to stay in their residences, so if we can come across a way to aid people discover what they want to make that transpire, we’re going to try out to do that,” she mentioned.
