Available for adoption Monday at the South Towns shelter of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is this "very quiet and friendly" female cat named Precious.
The 1 1/2 -year-old likes to be held and brushed. She was brought to the shelter because her owners had too many cats. Precious can be adopted for $40, which includes a rabies shot, spaying and a free visit to a veterinarian of choice.
Cat and dogs are available for adoption at the SPCA at 205 Ensminger Road, Town of Tonawanda, which is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, and the Niagara County SPCA Rainbow Animal Shelter, 2100 Lockport Road, Wheatfield, open from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
