TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Behind every cup of coffee at the Tally Cat Cafe, there is a purchase made that extends beyond the register and into their back room filled with cats.

Executive Director of the Leon County Humane Society Lisa Glunt said Tally Cat has been a game changer for the humane society.

Each cat at the Café is ready for adoption.

"It really acts as a foster home," Glunt said.

The owners of the Café aren’t just housing these furry friends.

"There’s transportation to and from the pet clinic, picking up additional supplies that might be needed and even fund raising," Glunt said. "When they take on a special animal, they really commit themselves to that animal."

In the last two years, Glunt said 50 percent of adoptions from the Humane Society have come directly from this Cafe.

"These guys are able to get into homes and it’s solely because of the attention they’re getting," Glunt said.
