Animals and Halloween have always gone hand in paw. This year, there are two events to benefit pets on this ghoulish holiday
Homeward Bound Cat Adoptions will celebrate National Cat Day and Halloween with feline adoption events planned for several days at three Las Vegas-area PetSmart stores.
Kittens and cats will be available for adoption at PetSmart stores at 1321 W. Craig Road in North Las Vegas, 1261 N. Decatur Blvd. in Las Vegas and 5915 S. Eastern Ave. in Las Vegas.

The nonprofit organization will make cats available at the North Decatur Boulevard store from noon to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
