Looking for a sweet family pet?  El Dorado County Animal Services is promoting the adoption of adult cats currently at its shelters in Diamond Springs and South Lake Tahoe. Adult cats can be adopted at either shelter for only $20 on Fridays and Saturdays during the month of May 2016, as part of Animal Services “Feline Fridays” and “Caturdays” special events.


All cats available for adoption at the shelters are spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, tested for leukemia and given a health exam. “The $20 adoption fee covers everything,” said Henry Brzezinski, Chief of El Dorado County Animal Services. “We currently have lots of wonderful adult cats of all ages, breeds, colors and coats.”


The Animal Services shelter in Diamond Springs is located at 6435 Capitol Avenue and is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  The shelter in South Lake Tahoe is located at 1120 Shakori Drive and is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to noon and 1:00 to 4:30 p.m.
