Adorable San Luis Obispo County Animal Services dogs and cats will be available for adoption from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Lemos Feed & Pet Supply at 3210 Broad St. in San Luis Obispo.
Last weeks Pet Tales dogs Molly and Chevy along with a variety of other shelter dogs and cats will be at the event hoping to meet their life-long families.
All attending dogs and cats are altered, have all their shots, are microchipped, come with a free vet visit and lots of local retailer coupons. Additionally, the dogs come with a new collar and a oneyear county license, and the cats are already FIV/FLVP tested and come with a cardboard carrier.
Enrich your life with the love of ahomeless pet. Come, fall in love and adopt this weekend.

Because of a generous outpouring of support, the Feline Network is able to extend its Spay Day certificate program through April. Cat spay/neuter certificates are available for individuals in need of financial assistance living in San Luis Obispo, the South County areas, Morro Bay and Los Osos. Certificates are currently not available for North County residents.
The certificates will have a value of $60 toward spay and $40 for neuter services as an incentive for people to spay/neuter their cats before kitten season. These can be obtained by calling 549-9228, ext. 707. The certificates are accepted at all veterinary clinics in the county. The number of certificates is limited.
The Feline Network is also looking for volunteer trappers to humanely trap cats for spay and neuter in San Luis Obispo County. There is an active program for homeless cats in San Luis Obispo and the South County areas. For more information, call 549-9228 or visit http://www.felinenetwork.org.
