Is making new friends among your resolutions for 2012? Why not start on Jan. 1 by adopting a new furry friend of the feline variety from Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary? On New Year’s Day, from noon to 6 p.m., Happy Tails will waive its adoption fees for all black, and black and white cats (1 year and older) as part of its “Black & White Purrball” event. All they ask in return is a donation of some cat food. The shelter is located at 6001 Folsom Blvd. in Sacramento.
Looking for a kitten? Go to PetsMart at 1738 Watt Ave. (Arden Way and Watt Avenue) in Sacramento from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; all black and black and white kittens (younger than a year) will be $25.
