An overabundance of cuddly kittens is a reason to celebrate at Española Humane, so the shelter is asking the community to celebrate in style by adopting during a reduced adoption fee Kitten Fiesta this weekend.

Kittens will be available for only $10 and, because two is always better than one, the shelter is offering a two-for-one adoption special during the Kitten Fiesta at Santa Fe Petco, 2006 Cerrillos Road and the shelter, 108 Hamm Parkway, Española. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13.

“There’s nothing that beats the joy of watching a kitten entertain itself, except watching two kittens play,” said Bridget Lindquist, the shelter’s executive director. “We have a lot of kittens in foster care and at the shelter this season and it’s time to get them to loving homes.”

More than 100 kittens are waiting for families, Lindquist said, and all will be ready for the fiesta. All pets are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and ready for loving families.

The shelter continues to offer $25 on all puppies and fee-waived adoption fees on all pets over 6 months of age. The August promotion aims to reduce overcrowding at the shelter so that the staff can care for pets who need the most urgent care.

The shelter’s adoption fees are affordable, and pets come microchipped, and all dogs are heartworm tested and with six months of heartworm prevention. All cats are tested as well.

To get a jump-start on an adoption, start the application process online at espanolahumane.org and create an online account. In addition to adoptions, the event features information on Española Humane, including foster and volunteer opportunities and other ways to support the organization.
