Claremont’s Priceless Pets Rescue spent last Saturday as a “cat café.” The fundraiser featured donuts, coffee, and playtime with some friendly, highly energetic felines. By hour’s end, about $360 had been raised and Pepper, a five-month-old light brown tabby, found a new home.

The event was meant to draw attention to kitten season, the months from April to October when shelters see an influx in cats due to feline mating patterns. As such, Priceless Pets is calling on the community to donate feline supplies such as wet food and formula for kittens, and adopt or foster cats such as four-month-old George, seen here.

“We get people coming in on a daily basis saying that they found this kitten or they found a whole litter, and we have to help direct them as best we can,” said Darya Harris, the manager of Claremont’s shelter. “We don’t have enough policy and regulation and government support to make sure that these animals are cared for in a humane way.”

Priceless Pets is at 665 E. Foothill Blvd., Suite E, Claremont. For adoption information call (909) 203-3695 or visit
