Meet Chester Your Calaveras Pet of the Week!

San Andreas, CA…Meet CHESTER, an adorable gray and white tuxedo older kitten. He is about 4-5 months old and was brought to the shelter after being abandoned at a gas station. Chester is a super love bug! He loves people, loves to be held and loves to snuggle in your arms. When you hold him, he tries to get as close to you as possible by climbing on your shoulder and draping himself around your neck. Chester loves to play, especially with a “feather on a string” toy. He would be an ideal kitty in any home where he will be showered with lots of love and attention.

Please use CHESTER’s intake number (A053419) when making inquiries at the shelter.

All cats available for adoption at the Calaveras Animal Shelter are up-to-date on their routine vaccinations and will be microchipped. All unaltered cats must be spayed or neutered before they can go home with you.

Animal Services now has a Fee Flexibility Program!
When the dog or cat population at the shelter is at 80% or above capacity, the total adoption fee will be 50% off––reduced to $40 for dogs and $30 for cats. The adoption fee for cats who arrive at the shelter already altered will be $10. With the 55-5-5 Program, any time an adopter is 55 or older and adopts any pet over 5 years old, the adoption fee is $5.

For more information about this kitty, please email Animal Services volunteer Cynthia at, Kathy at or call Animal Services directly at 754-6509
