Cory, a 10-week-old male kitten, is one of several black or black-and-white kittens at East of Eden that can be adopted this week for $50, half the usual fee. His sister Lyndi has the same coloring and personality. All the kittens have identification microchips and have been spayed or neutered, dewormed and vaccinated. East of Eden is a nonprofit animal rescue organization. Its volunteers are at Petco, 2888 Grant Line Road, from noon to 3 p.m. Saturdays. Preapproval is required for all adoptions. For information, call 815-5186 or visit

Clyde, a 3-year-old male gray-and-white domestic shorthair, is at the Tracy Animal Shelter and needs a home. Many kittens are also ready for adoption, and donations of canned and dry cat and dog food are needed. 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.

Doodlebug, a 3-month-old tortoiseshell kitten, is affectionate and gets along well with cats, dogs and children. Doodlebug is one of several young torties available for adoption from Animal Rescue of Tracy, including a polydactyl named Sally Six-toes and a couple of mediumhairs. Reduced adoption fees for cats are still in effect: $65 for kittens younger than 6 months and $35 for adults. 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 West Valley Mall, 3200 Naglee Road. From 5 to 9 p.m. this Sunday, Buffalo Wild Wings will give 20 percent back to the rescue group when diners mention either Animal Rescue of Tracy or the name “Aladdin,” a German shepherd mix puppy who is having elbow surgery at University of California, Davis.
