This week's adoptable cat is Martha, a short-haired Calico.
Martha, a two-year-old spayed female, will offer a friendly greeting when you arrive home. She loves people and attention. She has been with Manatee County Animal Services since Sept. 7 when she was picked up at the Greenbook Subdivision.
You can visit Martha at the Manatee County Animal Services downtown adoption center this week. The downtown center is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
Adoptions at Manatee County Animal Services, which include spay/neuter, vaccinations, health check and microchip, are $80 for dogs, plus a $10 license fee for those in Manatee County and $60 for cats, plus the license fee. Some animals who have been at the shelter too long are available for the $10 license fee. The downtown adoption center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
