Kittens, cats, dogs, puppies, bunnies and other critters of all colors, shapes, sizes and ages are searching for new homes. Staff and volunteers at the Hayward Animal Shelter are busy grooming their charges for the 8th Annual Black & White Furball animal adoption event which will be held at two locations, Hayward Animal Shelter and at PetSmart, Bayfair Mall, San Leandro.

Traditionally, most animals available are black and white, hence the event's name, but prospective owners will also be able to choose animals of all different hues.

The Hayward Animal Shelter Volunteers are sponsoring the one-day Hayward event which is offering special adoption prices - adopt one pet at the regular price and a second for $20 OR adopt any black, white or black and white pet for $20 plus the cost of the dog license (if adopting a dog). Adoptions are subsidized by shelter volunteers.

Special adoption fees also apply to the two-day San Leandro event, sponsored by the Sunshine Rescue Group, which will offer kittens and cats for adoption - adopt one pet at the regular price and a second for $20 OR adopt any black, white or black and white pet for $20.

If the adopter lives outside the City of Hayward, the license fee is deducted.

If a pet enters the shelter already spayed or neutered, the fee is reduced because the shelter does not have to subsidize the procedure.
