Like you, the cats and kittens at the Pet Adoption Center are ready to kick off the football season. Whether you love the Tigers, Panthers, Lions, Jaguars or other big cats, our feline friends will join the roar for your favorite team.

Adoption Special
Visit the Pet Adoption Center and find kennels decorated with footballs to meet our MVPs. To help these All-Stars find their puff-fect family, we're offering half-off ($30) the adoption fee until September 29 for those cats and kittens in our starting line-up.

As always, the adoption fee includes:
  • Spay/neuter service
  • Initial vaccinations
  • Microchipping
  • County license tag

Vote For Our Homecoming Kings and Queens
Along with half-priced adoptions, our Tail-Gate Special celebration also revives the age-old tradition of electing a Homecoming Court. Please vote before 5 p.m., on Friday, Sept. 21 or stop by the Pet Adoption Center during operating hours to select your favorite King and Queen candidate.
