When you adopt an adult feline companion throughout the month of July, we'll let you decide the adoption fee during our Name Your Own Price Adoption Promotion. We have dozens and dozens of cats to choose from. We are sure to have the perfect match for you. Only now you'll have the opportunity to put your own price on love!

We think our pet pick of the week Fitzgerald, affectionately known as Fitzy, a handsome 3-year-old blue-eyed boy is priceless. He is a bit overwhelmed and shy in the busy shelter having come from a quiet home with a senior companion but he is sure to flourish in a home of his own where he can relax and play with his favorite toy — a catnip mouse. He is very gentle and affectionate, preferring to lie next to you on the couch and being petted and brushed. Fitzy will make a wonderful, loving companion. How much would you pay for love?

Time is running out to have your pet shine in our 2014 Pet Calendar. For a donation of $35 your pet's photo will be featured on one of the available non-dated spaces on the calendar. You'll also receive a complimentary 2014 Calendar to show off to your friends and family. They make awesome holiday gifts too at just $10. Don't miss out on this fun way to help homeless animals in our community. The deadline is Aug. 1. Submission forms are at hskcme.org or pick one up at the shelter. Questions?
