TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Hermitage No Kill Cat Shelter is offering a unique take on March Madness and the U of A bid for a top seed. They will be naming each incoming cat to the shelter after an Arizona player. 

Throughout March, shelter volunteers will be naming these special 'wildcats' after UA players, forming a 'Cinderella team of MVPs' (Most Valuable Pets). These cats were picked by shelter officials after they had been rescued from other shelters. 

"We love the Arizona Wildcats as much as we do our Hermitage Cats,” said Lee Bucyk, Executive Director of the Hermitage, in a recent release. "We recently formed a partnership with the UA Veterinary Medical and Surgical Program that will benefit our Hermitage cats in the future and now, we want to honor our favorite team by rescuing at-risk felines and sending them to the Big Dance-their forever home."

According to the release, during this March special, adoption fees for Hermitage Wildcats will be based the Arizona player's jersey number and will include spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, food and a free wellness exam. 

For more information on the March Madness special, call the shelter at 571-7839 or email info@hermitagecatshelter.org
