Fees waived for older cats adopted in Toronto this weekend
  
The City of Toronto in partnership with Toronto Cat Rescue and PetSmart Charities is holding a pet adoption blitz during PetSmart Charities of Canada's National Adoption Weekend from September 16 to 18. Residents can go home with a cat more than eight years old without paying the usual $75 adoption fee.

The adoption fee for cats younger than eight is $75 and it ranges from $185 to $215 for dogs. Standard pet licensing fees apply to Toronto residents.

Rabbits that are spayed/neutered and other small animals will be available for a $40 adoption fee.

Dozens of cats, dogs and rabbits are up for adoption at two PetSmart locations, 835 Eglinton Ave. E. and 2050 Eglinton Ave. E.

All cats, dogs and rabbits are sterilized (spayed/neutered), microchipped, vet-checked, de-wormed and vaccinated.

There is also a wide variety of animals available for adoption at each of Toronto's shelters, including cats, dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits and birds.

Toronto Animal Services shelter locations:
• West Region, 146 The East Mall (Highway 427 and Dundas Street West)
• North Region, 1300 Sheppard Ave. W. (Keele Street and Sheppard Avenue West)
• East Region, 821 Progress Ave. (Highway 401 and Markham Road)

The three shelters are open from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. seven days a week.
