With 100 cats and kittens available for adoption, and another 100 waiting in foster care, the Kansas Humane Society hopes to encourage feline adoptions with a Cat Independence Days special today.
From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., kittens will be available at the reduced price of $17.76, with adult cats available at "Pick Your Price" adoption fees. There is a limit of two cat adoptions per household.
All feline adoptions include spay or neuter surgery, a basic series of cat vaccinations, a microchip ID and a cat carrier.
The shelter is also offering 20 percent off all standard dog and small mammal adoption fees.

Dog wash is open for business
Got a dirty dog? Let volunteers do the work while you help a good cause at the Retain summer dog wash.
Today and every Saturday between 1 and 4 p.m. through Sept. 3, weather permitting, volunteers will shampoo, rinse and towel off dogs for a requested donation of $4 for a small or medium-sized dog and $5 for a large dog.
Proceeds from the dog wash, held outside Heartland Animal Hospital, 4100 N. Woodlawn in Bel Aire, go to Retain, a local group that helps pay for spay and neuter surgeries for pets whose owners can't afford them.
