Scary Good Deal on Furry Felines

Adopt a cat or kitten for only $5? This is no trick, but a special treat being offered by County Animal Services throughout the month of October.  

The Department of Animal Services’ three animal care facilities are overwhelmed with cats and kittens, so it’s offering the special rate to encourage adoptions.

“For the low adoption fee of only $5, an adopter can give a forever, loving home to one of our wonderful cats or kittens. Better yet, adopt one and get the second for free!” said Animal Services Director Dawn Danielson.

The $5 fee includes vaccinations, spay or neuter, a microchip and a free veterinary visit.

There are hundreds of cats and kittens to choose from. To check them out, visit any of the County’s three animal care facilities or see which ones are available for adoption on the department’s website
