Several cats have a new place to consider home after a successful pet adoption event was held recently at the animal shelter.
Marty Bertera, animal control officer, was hoping if the event was more publicized a larger crowd would come out for the affair.

Bertera said once the word starts to get out about the animal shelter and where it is located, he believes it will increase the number of people who make the place an option for getting a pet.
