A local cat rescue organization is working to find suitable homes for felines through its “Adopt a City Kitty” events held each weekend at the Citrus Heights Petco on Greenback Lane.

“Meet your purrfect best friend ANY Saturday or Sunday,” reads a flier advertising Sacramento’s River City Cat Rescue adoption events, encouraging adoption of locally rescued cats.

Photos and descriptions of available cats are viewable online, and the cat rescue organization’s website says all its felines are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, FeLV/FIV tested, de-wormed, microchipped and treated for fleas.

Those interested in adopting are requested to take a short questionnaire, designed to help the group find a “purrfect” match and a suitable home for each cat.

The Sacramento-based cat rescue’s mission is to educate, facilitate and advocate for non-lethal methods of reducing feral cat populations and help provide animals in peril with veterinary and foster care until adoption.

Although scheduled indefinitely for each Saturday and Sunday, the group says events may be cancelled at any time and recommends calling Petco at (916) 725-2556 during regular weekend adoption hours to ensure the event is still taking place.
