Bay Area residents looking to adopt a cat or kitten may now do so free of charge at the Peninsula Human Society and SPCA, Human Society officials announced this week.
The Tom and Annette Lantos Center for Compassion in Burlingame is waiving adoption fees for all cats and kittens. Feline adoption fees usually run from $50 to $95.
"Instead, we’re asking adopters to make a donation in any amount." says PHS's Brian Probst.
The goal is to get a few hundred cats and kittens into new, permanent loving homes by Christmas.
Area residents interested in adopting a feline companion are encouraged to fill out a one-page adoption profile before heading to the shelter. The downloadable profile and a sampling of the shelter's available cats can be found at www.PHS-SPCA.org. The shelter is located at 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame and is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends.
To view available cats and kittens, and even see a live webcam video of these cats at play, go to http://phs-spca.org/adopt/cat.html.
