Another reason to go to Sacramento Pride: free cats

You might score a new best friend at Sacramento Pride on Saturday.

Of course, there are plenty of reasons to go already. International pop star Neon Hitch is headlining the festival, and she’s got a fascinating, free lovin’ backstory that connects to her frequent appearance at Pride events. Other top-notch entertainers like Tom Goss and Xavier Toscano will also be featured. But there’s one major attraction we haven’t covered yet…

Cats. (And dogs.) How could we forget?

From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Capitol Mall, between Third and Seventh Streets, Front Street Animal Shelter will have a booth with adoptable pets. The shelter has had a presence at Pride since 2010, but this year, it will lower adoption fees to $25. And a new sponsor, Lasher Elk Grove Subaru, will take care of those fees.

In other words, your new furry best friend is free. 

The regular cost to adopt from the shelter is $65 for cats and $85 for dogs. It costs $10 to enter the festival. Sounds like you should finally commit to that secret cat you’ve been longing for, right?
