Calaveras County Pets of the Week! You Can’t Buy Love But You Can Adopt It!

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/23/2020 04:53 PM
San Andreas, CA...They say you can’t buy love but you certainly can adopt it. This photo is representative of the many adorable, spunky and playful kittens currently at the shelter – we’ll leave the naming to you. Can’t decide which one to adopt - why not adopt a pair?  It truly is easier to raise two than a single kitten because they’ll keep each other company when you can’t be there and grow up to be the best of friends. Besides being up-to-date on their routine vaccinations and micro-chipped, also guaranteed to bring a smile. The little charmers pictured are already altered and able to go home with you today!

San Andreas, CA...In the evening of September 18, 2020, an elderly male (72 years of age) contacted the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office to report an incident of elder abuse.
