SPECIAL TO THE PVT

LAS VEGAS — More than 100 deserving cats from the FLOCK facility in Pahrump are ready to use their feline wiles to win the hearts of Las Vegas residents this weekend.

The Paws from Pahrump — Cat Adoption Day has a goal of finding homes for at least 75 of the cats rescued from the FLOCK facility.

The event is scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Summerlin PetSmart, 9775 W. Charleston Blvd. Sat., Sept. 8.

These kitties are some of the 600-plus cats that were surrendered to Nye County Animal Control last month. The national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society was brought in to turn the sad situation around and to do right by the cats.

“We are hopeful that this weekend’s event will help many of these incredible cats find the home they’ve been dreaming of,” said Nikki Sharp, campaign manager for Best Friends. “They have been through so much, and it’s time for them to be spoiled with love and attention. We encourage anyone with a big heart and a cat-friendly home to come in and find a companion.”

People can fill out their adoption application online, have it screened and approved prior to coming to PetSmart to meet the kitties Saturday. Go to http://network.bestfriends.org/nyecounty/news/ and click on the adoption tab to fill out the application.
