There are cute cats everywhere at the Animal Service Center. If Canaan and Laliari don't capture your attention, maybe Jean-Pierre will do the trick.
Janet Darrah came to the shelter Friday to pick up two cats.
"I think they're good for each other. I think nobody should be by themself and cats are the same," Darrah said.
She owned two cats who died and although they can't be replaced, she's ready for new companions.
"When you have cats that long they become a part of you."
More than 3,000 cats have entered the shelter this year. It's now hosting free adoptions through December 31 for cats that still need a home.
As long as the cats have been there for two weeks, you can pick one up free of charge.
"We just still have a lot of cats coming in this month and we just don't have a lot of people still looking to adopt," said Erika Leckington, director of the Animal Service Center.
The shelter has taken in about 300 animals, many of them cats -- in December alone.
For Janet, she says it's worth it to adopt a cat.
"They're very comforting, they're very loving, and they'll always always love you and be there for you."
