July is ‘Kitty Palooza’ at Yolo animal shelter

Yolo County Animal Services is hosting a “Kitty Palooza” event throughout July.

The event features special adoption fees on cats younger than 6 months at $15 each, or two for $25, and $5 for cats older than 6 months. Dogs will be adoptable for $50, with pit bull breeds and pit bull mixes costing only $25.

The reduced adoption fees include spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping, deworming, testing for heartworm disease for dogs and feLV or FeLV/FIV testing for cats (rabies vaccination and licensing not included). The event takes place throughout July at the Yolo County Animal Services Shelter, 140 Tony Diaz Drize in Woodland.

“While cats are available for adoption throughout the year, July is one of our busiest months in terms of the number of cats and kittens that arrive at our shelter every year,” said Vicky Fletcher, chief animal services officer. “And all they are looking for is a loving home.”

When you visit the shelter, staff asks that you “be a litter bug” and bring a bag of non-clumping kitty litter to donate.

The mission of Yolo County Animal Services is to promote high volume adoptions of homeless pets, to provide low-cost spay and neuter programs to help stop pet overpopulation and to educate the community on pet retention services to drastically reduce the flow of lost and surrendered animals to shelters.
