Animals in Distress, next to the town hall annex at 238 Danbury Road, will join in Clear the Shelters Day on July 23. This is a nationwide, pet-adoption initiative.

Animals in Distress is a no-kill cat shelter. It will be open Saturday from 1 to 5.

The shelter has photos of its cats and kittens for adoption on its Facebook page, and is offering reduced fees: $25 for adult cats, $100 for kittens.

Ellie has patiently been waiting more than two years for a real loving home.

Ten-year-old Bobbi came to the shelter when her owner died. She would probably be happiest in a quiet adult home.

To be considered for a same-day adoption, fill out and submit an online application form: Otherwise, visit the shelter on Saturday and get to know some of the lovely cats there.
