These curious kittens who live at The Ark animal shelter in Cherryfield will be among those available for adoption Aug. 18 at a store in Ellsworth.

ELLSWORTH, Maine — The Ark Animal shelter has been invited to participate in an adoption event at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug, 18, at the new Tractor Supply Store located in Ellsworth next to Marden’s.

The Ark will have many kittens on hand available for adoption. Due to the overflowing numbers of cats and kittens in all of our area shelters our kitten adoption fees will be reduced to $50 from the regular fee of $100. These kittens are age 3 to 6 months old. They have been spayed/neutered, tested for FeLV/FIV, vaccinated for distemper, as well as having several parasite treatments, including flea preventatives. They come in all colors, and are well adjusted, social kittens.

The Ark is accepting adoption applications in advance of the event. Visit to download an adoption application, orstop by the shelter on 60 Barber Lane in Cherryfield to fill out an application or stop by Tractor Supply Store and ask for an adoption application. Email, fax or drop off the completed application at the shelter to be processed.  Bring proof of home ownership such as copy of a tax bill with your address on it, or a rental lease agreement, and an up to date rabies certificates for other pets in the household.

From now until the end of September The Ark will waive adoption fees on adult cats for approved homes.
