Woods Humane Society is reducing its cat adoption fees in an effort to find more forever homes for the felines in its care. The fee for adult cats is now $80, and cats older than 7 years old are $65.

Woods is also hosting positive-reinforcement K9 obedience classes. Classes are six weeks long and on Saturdays, Feb. 1 through March 8; March 22 through April 26; and May 10 through June 14. The first class is an orientation without dogs. Proof of rabies, bordetella and DHPP vaccines must be provided to register for classes. Registration is $130 per dog.

Woods is at 875 Oklahoma Ave. in San Luis Obispo.
