NEWINGTON, Conn. (AP) _ The Connecticut Humane Society is stepping up its efforts to find new homes for stray cats.

The animal protection group says summer is usually when more homeless cats are in need of permanent homes. Spokeswoman Alicia Wright also says pet owners who have lost their homes or suffered financial setbacks may surrender their cats and dogs.

The Connecticut Humane Society is offering discounted adoptions through Sunday at its shelters in Newington, Waterford and Westport.

For cats older than 5 the adoption fee is $5 and for cats between 3 and 5, the adoption fee will be $20.
