Local residents who adopt a cat or kitten from the Yolo County Animal Shelter during June can do so at a bargain price in honor of National Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month.

Single cats or kittens are $55 each; two kittens (under 4 months old) can be adopted for $75. This is a reduction from the standard $110 fee.

“Wondering what this package includes? All makes and models, standard four-paw drive, standard free microchip and 100,000-purr warranty,” a news release said. “Pre-adoption care includes a multi-point inspection, spay or neuter, medical check-up (includes FeLV/FIV test), vaccines (includes rabies vaccines for all ages) and behavior evaluation.”
For those who can’t adopt a new companion, but would like to make a donation, the Animal Shelter accepts liquid laundry detergent as well as Frontline and Advantage flea prevention medicine.

“Shelter dogs love an opportunity to chew on Nylabones or KONGs,” the news release said of suggested toy donations. “Cats in our care love balls with bells or ping pong balls. Interactive cat or dog toys are appreciated by our staff and volunteers who work hard to make the stay for pets waiting for a new home the best it can be.”

Shelter officials remind community members to spay and neuter their pets.

“Make sure your companion is microchipped and has a collar and tag; pets need a way to say they have a guardian who cares and it provides a way home if they wander,” the news release said.

The shelter provides low-cost vaccines by appointment as well as microchipping. Dogs over the age of 4 months must be licensed and vaccinated for rabies and all dogs when out strolling in public must be on-leash unless in a specified off-leash park or on private property where dogs are allowed.

The Yolo County Animal Shelter is at 2640 E. Gibson Road in Woodland. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday (closed for lunch from 1 to 2 p.m. each day).

For more information, call the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office, Animal Services Section, at (530) 668-5287, ext. 0, during office hours.
