Special adoption case wishing for a Meowy Christmas
Kitten who hops on her back legs looking for a fur-ever home

She was born with only two working legs, but that’s not stopping Roo from making her way into the hearts of staff at Animal Care Services. Roo’s front legs are unusable so this former stray gets around by hopping on her two back paws—a feat she’s become very good at! This weekend, Animal Care Services is hosting a Meowy Christmas & Happy Howlidays Adoption Party to encourage the continued placement of shelter dogs and cats and Roo is one of the shelter’s many pets in need. Residents are urged to make an informed decision before getting a new pet at any time of the year in order to find a companion that fits with your family and your lifestyle. The shelter has hundreds of adoption ready dogs, cats, puppies and kittens of all ages, shapes, sizes and colors and gift certificates will be available. Companion animals adopted from ACS leave sterilized, vaccinated, de-wormed, licensed and micro-chipped and all new adopters receive a starter bag of premium pet food as well as two tickets to Sea World. Animal Care Services will offer $25 dog/puppy adoptions and $10 cat/kitten adoptions on the following dates:

  • Friday, December 15th to Sunday, December 23rd
  • Monday, December 24th *Christmas Eve hours of 11am to 3pm

Animal Care Services will be closed Tuesday, December 25th (Christmas Day) and Tuesday, January 1st (New Year’s Day) to allow staff to enjoy the holidays.
