Cat adoption hosted by Yolo Animal Shelter goes well

The Yolo County Sheriff's Department, Animal Services Section, hled the last of its Hot August Nights special for cats and kittens on Sunday, Sept. 1, at Pet Extreme in Woodland.

Shelter volunteers arrived with about 10 cats and kittens in need of homes. As of early Sunday, several had been adopted.

The event is one of several held throughout the year where special promotional pricing is granted in hopes of finding homes for the animals.

During the adoption, promotional pricing for cats and kittens was $50 for one and $75 for two. The fee included the cost of spay or neuter, testing for FELV/FIV for cats or FELV for kittens, rabies vaccines if older than 12 weeks, and FVRCP vaccine and microchip.

People not able to adopt a new companion can still help out by donating liquid laundry detergent and Frontline or Advantage, Fletcher said. Kittens also love balls with bells, ping pong balls or little furry mice to help provide play time.

The Yolo County Animal Shelter is located at 140-C Tony Diaz Drive with the entrance on E. Gibson Road, next to the main Sheriff's Department in Woodland.

The Animal Shelter is open to the public between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, with limited services from 1 to 5 p.m. on Mondays.
