Cinco de Gato Adoption Event

Get your gato on: There’s another reason to celebrate Cincy de Mayo this Sunday, May 5. That’s because the Maryland SPCA will host its Cinco de Gato Adoption Event, where all cats six months old and older can be adopted for just $5!
Shelters usually experience a large influx of cats and kittens this time of year, and they all need to find good homes. All cats at the shelter Sunday will be spayed or neutered and up to date with vaccinations (microchipping and pet licensing are not included in the $5 adoption fee). 
To meet your next special feline friend, visit the MD SPCA at 3300 Falls Road, Baltimore, on Sunday, May 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Ole’!(Shaka Zulu, pictured, is a one-year-old Norweigan Forest cat mix who will be available for adoption on Sunday, along with many other cats and kittens.)
