ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- The Anchorage Animal Care and Control Center hosted a pet adoption fair Sunday afternoon, offering people a chance to meet the perfect companion.
Some of the fair's highlights included cat massage instruction and a pooch parade. Cats and dogs were up for adoption, as well as other animals like rabbits -- but the focus was on the felines, because June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month.
"Cats are also good: they're very independent, they can provide companionship at home," said center volunteer Mary O'Connor. "So they're greeting you at the door when you walk in tired and dirty from your hike -- cats are great for that."
The shelter is open every day of the week for adoptions.
