Bay Area residents looking to adopt a cat or kitten may now do so free of charge at the Peninsula Human Society and SPCA, Human Society officials announced this week.
The Humane Society and SPCA's new adoption center in Burlingame is waiving adoption fees for all cats and kittens. Feline adoption fees at the local SPCA usually run from $50 to $95, according to organization spokesman Scott Delucchi.
As of Thursday, the Burlingame shelter was housing about 80 cats and kittens awaiting homes, with more held at the organization's intake facility at Coyote Point, according to Delucchi.
"Our goal is to get a few hundred cats and kittens into new, permanent loving homes by Christmas," he said.
"We will gladly trade adoption fees for those homes."
Area residents interested in adopting a feline companion are encouraged to fill out a one-page adoption profile before heading to the shelter. The downloadable profile and a sampling of the shelter's available cats can be found at www.PHS-SPCA.org. The shelter is located at 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame and is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends.
