Kittens and Cats Need Homes

June is Adopt-a-Cat Month

June is the time for many things, such as Solstice, the World Cup, and Bloomsday. It also bears the distinction of being Adopt-a-Cat month. With the spring came loads of kittens, and now area shelters are bursting with adorable fluffy felines looking for homes. To encourage folks to add a four-legged (or two) to their family, the Santa Barbara Humane Society is offering a reduced adoption fee of $44 throughout June. A slew of services come with the low price, including spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and registration, a temperament evaluation, and a cardboard cat carrier. The Humane Society is located at 5399 Overpass Road. For more information, call 964-4777 or visit
