Kittens flood local shelters

Throughout the month of November local adoption centers will be offering kittens for the bargain-basement adoption fee of $10.

Kitten season starts in January and often reaches its peak in the fall in Santa Clara County. The race to find a home for the kittens is fierce as local shelters are filled to the brim with felines.

City of Palo Alto Animal Services, City of San Jose Animal Care & Services, Humane Society Silicon Valley, and Town Cats in Morgan Hill are participating in this adoption event.

The Santa Clara Animal Care & Control in San Martin and Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority also will be offering cats, but not for the same low price.

The shelter felines have undergone health and behavior checks and have been spayed or neutered to ensure they are ready for a new home. Shelter officials urge people in the community not only to adopt the babies, but to help round up stray cats and have them neutered before returning them to their regular haunts.

Materials, supplies, and volunteers are also in demand at these shelters during kitten season.
