The Pet Placement Center will offer cats and kittens for adoption during its Be Mine Felines Adoption event.

The event will take place at The Pet Placement Center, 5975 Dayton Blvd on Thursday, Feb. 14, from 10 a.m.-5 pm. For one day only, all cats and kittens will be half price. All cats leave spayed or neutered, microchipped, feline leukemia and FIV tested, updated on vaccinations, dewormed and treated with flea and heartworm preventative.
  

“Sadly, homeless cats and kitten are abundant in the Chattanooga area. Here at The Pet Placement Center, we provide a safe haven for these unwanted felines. Each and every one has a temporary home with us until a permanent home can be found,” said Executive Director Kerry Moyers-Horton.

"You can even select the cat you want to meet before visiting. All of our adoptable cats are listed on our website. Learn everything we know about each one before stepping foot in the door. And thanks to our wonderful volunteer photographer, you can also see their glamor shots," she said.
