This week’s adoptable pet is Samantha, a sleepy little tiger-striped kitten.
Samantha is a 1-year-old and has been with Manatee County Animal Services since July 2, when she was picked up as a stray. Samantha is a sweet little kitten. She has been in the shelter for nearly three months and just wants to find a good home. Visit Samantha at the county’s downtown adoption center. Don’t let the sidewalk construction out front fool you — the center is still open.
September is a great month to adopt a cat like Samantha who has been in the shelter for more than a month. Manatee County Animal Services is offering adoption specials on all dogs and cats that have been at the shelter 30 days or longer. Dogs that have been at the shelter a month or more can be adopted for $30, a $50 savings off the regular adoption fee of $80. Cats, normally priced at $60, can be adopted for $10. This adoption special is another step in the County’s plan to become a no-kill community.
For more information, visit www.mymanatee.org/pets or call 941-742-5824. The animal services webpage features updated photos and descriptions of the pets available for adoption. Pet owners can also use the site to locate missing pets.
