Valley Humane Society

"They call me Boom Boom Betty, and I'm the real thing, honey -- the cat's meow. You could wait nine lives before you find another feline like me. I'm quite kittenish at heart. Come on down and see me some time -- soon!"

During an adults-only event this week, Thursday through Sunday, adopt any adult cat (9 months or older) for $14; standard adoption criteria apply.

Valley Humane Society is at 3670 Nevada St. in Pleasanton. Hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, noon to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. For details, call 925-426-8656 or visit www.valleyhumane.org or www.facebook.com/ValleyHumaneSociety.
