Several kittens at East of Eden animal rescue are expected to be ready for new homes June 1 and 2, and applications are being taken now. Adoption fees — normally $90 per animal — will be waived for Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days, a nationwide free pet-adoption event. Preapproved applicants can put down a $40 deposit for a kitten, which will be refunded if the adoption is completed June 1 or 2. The kittens will be at Petco, 2888 Grant Line Road, from noon to 3 p.m. Saturdays this month to visit with prospective adopters. East of Eden is a nonprofit animal rescue organization.
