At the Shelter

Fozzy, an adult male rabbit, and Polly, a 3-month-old domestic shorthair kitten, are at the Tracy Animal Shelter and need a home. Fozzy was one of five rabbits abandoned in a box at the shelter. A cockatiel and several cats and dogs are also available for adoption. The staff is seeking donations of canned food for dogs and cats, dog toys, puppy and kitten formula and flea shampoo. In partnership with Jules Veterinary Center, Tracy Animal Shelter is offering an August adoption special. Any two cats or kittens, male or female, can be adopted for $90 — the cost of spaying or neutering, with the regular adoption fees waived. The shelter, 370 Arbor Road, is open from noon to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For information: 831-6364 or “City of Tracy Animal Services” on Facebook.

To the rescue

O’Malley and Heathcliff, 4-month-old red tabbies, are available for adoption from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23, during Animal Rescue of Tracy’s final Feline Friday at the West Valley Mall, 3200 Naglee Road. O’Malley is the adventuresome one, and Heathciff likes to follow his lead. Their adoption fees are reduced by $20 during the group’s Cat and Dog Days of Summer special. Animal Rescue of Tracy is a nonprofit, all-volunteer rescue group that has pet adoption fairs for dogs and cats from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays in the Macy’s wing of the mall. Members will also make arrangements to show animals in rescue during the week. For information: 642-4324 or
