Annual cat/kitten adopt-a-thon features low adoption fees, prizes and fun.

SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA (MPG) - On August 3 and 4, everyone wins at the Bradshaw Animal Shelter’s annual Kitty Palooza, including the many cats and kittens, who are ready for their loving “forever” homes and the adopters, who will get a greatly reduced adoption fee, free pet supplies and, most importantly, a new, furry best friend to love for the rest of their lives.

More than 200 cats and kittens will be available at the thirteenth annual Kitty Palooza, noon-4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 3-4. Adoption fees are slashed for the two-day kitty adopt-a-thon: $15 for one cat/kitten or $20 for two. Included in every adoption is a spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip, ID tag and collar, a one-year license for County adopters and a free vet exam voucher; about a $200 value.

“Summer is when we tend to have a larger population of cats and especially kittens,” said Dave Dickinson, director of the Sacramento County Bradshaw Animal Shelter. “Many of the kittens have been raised by foster care providers and have been socialized with children and other animals. This event is a wonderful way to match up adoptable kittens and cats with new families and to reduce the number of felines housed at the shelter.”

Volunteers and Bradshaw Animal Shelter staff will be available both days to assist potential adopters with finding the perfect cat or kitten for their lifestyle. Adopters will also receive “Kitty Starter Kits,” while supplies last; pet care information and prize drawings.

Bradshaw Animal Shelter is located at 3839 Bradshaw Road, Sacramento, 95827.
