Some local animals are looking for a place to call home.

The Animal Shelter in Muskingum County is holding a special cat adoption day Saturday. The first ten cats adopted will be only $25.

"Our cat population over the last few weeks has steadily been increasing," said Executive Director Jody Murray. "Rather than waiting till we got full we thought it might be a time to have some special fees."

While there are kittens up for adoption Murray said not to forget about the older cats.

"We don’t want people to overlook the older cats," said Murray. "A lot of the older cats have already been socialized, have already been in somebody’s home and have a lot of good characteristics. We encourage people to come in Saturday."

The shelter is open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
