Adopt a friendly feline

AnimalSave is promoting cat adoptions this month to celebrate the American Humane Association’s national Adopt-A-Cat month.

Summer is the time when cats that are not spayed or neutered tend to be more active. As a result, more abandoned kittens are up for adoption at this time of the year.

Those interested to adopt a cat or a kitten, can call AnimalSave at 271-7071 ext. 206. You could also visit AnimalSave’s Cat Nap Room between noon to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday on 520 East Main Street in Grass Valley.
