For some people, cats are better than tequila.
The Wake County Animal Center wants adult cats to find forever homes during its “Cinco de Meow” adoption special. It’s a play on Cinco de Mayo, the May 5 holiday that commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over France in 1862 and serves as an excuse for many people to drink alcohol.
From May 1 through 7, residents can name their price to adopt a cat that is 6 months or older. The animal center’s regular adoption fee for cats is $45.
“Adult cats make great pets because they have already developed their personalities and behaviors,” the adoption center says in a news release. “If a cat is coming from a foster home, potential owners will also know more about what the animal is like in a home environment.”
The animal center has about 13 adult cats, and about 17 more are in foster homes. To see all the cats available for adoption, go to pets.wakegov.com/gallery.
The Wake County Animal Center serves stray, abandoned and surrendered pets and finds homes for thousands of animals each year. It’s located at 820 Beacon Lake Road in Raleigh.
