TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The first weekend in October is your chance to adopt a 'fur'ever friend, thanks to a partnership between the Hermitage No Kill Cat Shelter and Petco.  

"We believe that pet rescue is a community effort," Emma Crawford, the Marketing Specialist at The Hermitage said in a recent release. "Fifty years is an amazing milestone and we’re thrilled to have played an integral part in southern Arizona rescue all these years."

Cats will be available at the Petco located at River Road and Craycroft, in the Whole Foods shopping plaza.  

Adoption fees will be reduced to $10 per cat, with the ultimate goal of 50 adoptions for the weekend. According to a recent release, Hermitage will receive $50 for every five or more adoptions; if 50 or more animals are adopted during this special event, the shelter will receive $100 per cat from Petco.  Also joining in the event will be Whole Foods. 

Those interested in adopting a cat must fill out an adoption application online prior to the event.  

Specially trained adoption counselors are available for questions at (520) 571-7839.
