Our pet pick of the week is Onyx. This handsome boy is around 3 years old. You can find Onyx front and center in the shelter's lobby greeting visitors and helping with paperwork on the front counter. He is a very affable fellow. He is fine with other cats and kids and will make a wonderful family pet.

Looking for a stunner? You should meet Drizzle. She's a 2-year-old beauty. With shiny, jet black fur, a sleek panther like body and the most gorgeous golden eyes. She's super sweet and ready to have a home of her own. Right now the adoption fee for both Onyx and Drizzle is waived. That's right, it's your last chance to take advantage of our Certified Pre-Owned Cat promotion.

When August ends, so does our promotion where all adult cats one year and older are available to qualified adopters with $0 down, 0 percent financing and no payments and kittens are 50 percent off. Here's your chance to get great rates on pre-owned cats. Help cats cruise into new homes. Adopt today. This amazing deal ends Saturday.
