Adopt.  Don't shop.  For one local non-profit, they're offering a sweet special for all black and white cats and kittens for Valentine's Day this year!

Paws Humane Society in Rockford posted that their adult cats will be only $40 and kittens $70 for a limited time only.  What a wonderful Valentine's Day special!

Reminder: Pets are a life long commitment.  Please, if you adopt remember there are way more expenses that come with owning a pet. Think long term before you adopt on impulse.

OMG is Poptart ($70) not the cutest name?!

Hamilton ($40) is also available for adoption, he has a beautiful black coat.

And Natasha ($40) is trying her hardest to get adopted!

Along with these gorgeous Valentine's Day cats, there are others available at Paws Humane Society.  Paws is located across from Cherryvale Mall at 7282 N Cherryvale Mall Drive.

Roman is 7 months old, house trained and looking for his furever home! $85.

Willow is a 1 year old tortie, house trained, and just $55.

Pudge is about 5 months old, house trained, and only $85.

I adopted my fur babies, Ramen and Noodles, from Paws Humane Society and they give you all the time you need to interact with all the cats before making the big decision.  If you'd like to browse all the available cats and kittens, visit their website.

Being a non-profit, Paws accepts donations from the public! You can find their wish list here.  If you'd like to volunteer at the rescue snuggling with the animals, help at events, or just assist in cleaning the shelter sign up here.
