Probably nothing is cuter than an event called “Kittenpalooza.”

On Sunday, the Kansas Humane Society will sponsor reduced-cost adoptions of kittens. From 1 to 3 p.m., people may adopt fuzzy felines 9 months or younger for $25. Adult cats may be adopted at no cost, but donations are appreciated. Dogs 5 or older will have an adoption cost of $50. The shelter also is selling “Whole Kitten-Caboodle” kits full of cat supplies for $25. The kits include a litterbox, a litter scoop, a box of litter, litter box liners, a bowl and a brush.

Adoption fees include spaying or neutering surgery, vaccinations, a physical exam, a microchip, flea and tick treatment and other care.

“Summers are a busy time for the Kansas Humane Society and this summer is no exception,” spokeswoman Melissa Houston said in a news release, adding that the society has “over 100 pets available for adoption with more coming in every day, and we need help from the community through adoptions and donations.”

The society, near K-96 and Hillside, also is soliciting donations of replacement milk formula for puppies and kittens, soft treats, toys and large wire crates.
