The San Luis Obispo County Animal Services shelter is full of cats and kittens awaiting new forever homes. Shelter volunteer Ellen Perryess highlights some of the many cats available for adoption:
Yikes! It’s mid-September and there are still kittens at the SLO County Animal Services shelter; not only kittens but also teenagers, adults and seniors cats, too. To help them find homes, this Saturday cat adoption fees will be half off.
Here’s a sampler of shelter cats looking for homes:
Our senior representatives are Mojo and Mia. Mojo’s a black and white, 10-year-old de-clawed couch potato who has happily lived with kids, cats and dogs. Mia’s a sweet 8-year-old gray and white cat who’s a gentle and affectionate soul.
Never miss a local story.
Representing the preteens is Toto. He’s an adorable 4-month-old who’s been growing up at the shelter. Toto’s an orange and white manx who is shyly appreciative of pets and will benefit from a quiet, loving home.
Here’s a litter to represent our kitten population — these four enjoying playing with people and felines. Jessie and Joey are striped buff-colored boys and the two girls have tortoiseshell coats — Jody’s a dilute gray and Jamie’s a charcoal long-haired kitten.

Meet an abundance of felines this Saturday on the front lawn and inside the SLO County Animal Services shelter from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. or at the Templeton Farmers Market from 8:30 a.m. to noon. All will be half-price.
This Saturday, prepare for shorter days and chilly winter nights — adopt a lap-warmer or four-legged entertainment center now.

The adoption fee is $80 for cats and $105 for dogs, plus a $25 county license fee for dogs if the adopters are San Luis Obispo County residents.
The adoption fee includes spay or neuter, basic vaccinations, microchip, eligibility for a free veterinarian check, new collar and ID tag, and carrier for cats.
Rattlesnake avoidance training for dogs will be held Sept. 27 in San Luis Obispo. During the daylong session, your dog will learn to avoid the sight, sound and the smell of a rattlesnake once they become aware of one to give you peace of mind and potentially save both you and your dog’s life. Space is limited, and registration is $95 per dog.
