Looking for a sweet family pet? El Dorado County Animal Services is promoting
the adoption of adult cats currently at its shelters in Diamond Springs and
South Lake Tahoe. Adult cats can be adopted at either shelter for only $20 on
Fridays and Saturdays during the month of May 2016, as part of Animal Services
“Feline Fridays” and “Caturdays” special events.
All cats available for adoption at the shelters are spayed or
neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, tested for leukemia and given a health
exam. “The $20 adoption fee covers everything,” said Henry Brzezinski, Chief of
El Dorado County Animal Services. “We currently have lots of wonderful adult
cats of all ages, breeds, colors and coats.”
The Animal Services shelter in Diamond Springs is located at
6435 Capitol Avenue and is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. The shelter in South Lake Tahoe is
located at 1120 Shakori Drive and is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30
a.m. to noon and 1:00 to 4:30 p.m.
Animal Services has additional information, including
pictures of adoptable animals, on its website at www.edcgov.us/animalservices. The
shelters may be reached by phone at (530) 621-5795 in Diamond Springs or (530)
