Cats get another life


Thanks to caring community support, a total of 22 cats were adopted during the first Adopt-a-Thon promotion on Aug. 14. Once again on Aug. 28, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Lake Tahoe Humane Society and S.P.C.A., and 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the El Dorado County Animal Control.

The private, donation supported Lake Tahoe Humane Society and S.P.C.A. and the public, tax supported El Dorado County Animal Control are joining forces to present a second August Nights Adopt-A-Thon to help save the lives of cats and kittens still crowding their shelters.

Never has there been a surplus cat population as big as Tahoe Summer 2002. The community is urged to please help “Keep Tahoe Kind” now by: 1) Spay or neuter your pets immediately; 2) Adopt and help save the remaining cats and kittens still in the public and private shelters.

The Lake Tahoe Humane Society and S.P.C.A. will provide a special gift package for each person who adopts from the public or the private animal shelter during August. New feline guardians will receive gifts of food, a food bowl, a cat toy, a pet ID tag, and a free cat carrier to help welcome their new family member. Adoption fees including testing, vaccinations, and spay or neuter.

Anyone who has been thinking about adopting a cat or kitten is urged to act now during this over population crisis. Adoption standards, polices and procedures will be maintained during the special effort to place these orphan felines. For more information, call El Dorado County Animal Control at (530) 577-1766 or the Lake Tahoe Humane Society and S.P.C.A. at (530) 577-4521.
