Clackamas County Dog Services is again partnering with the Cat Adoption Team to help homeless cats find their way home for the holidays.

On Saturday, from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., cats (and dogs) will be available for adoption at the CCDS Adoption and Education Center, 13141 SE Highway 212, Clackamas. Cat adoption costs will be $25 for adults and $50 for kittens.

Santa will visit from noon to 2 p.m. to spread good cheer to animal and people guests.

Cat Adoption Team volunteers and CCDS staff and volunteers will be on hand to help people find the perfect feline or canine companion. Adoptable dogs can be viewed at clackamas.us/dogs. Adoption application forms are available online so interested pet owners can submit applications before visiting the shelter.

"This is a great opportunity for dog and cat lovers to come to one place in Clackamas County to find the perfect pet to bring home," said Maura White, development officer for Clackamas County Dog Services. "CCDS does not normally have cats for adopting, but we appreciate this chance to find new homes for adoptable cats in Clackamas County."
