County shelters are offering free pet adoptions. Here’s a noye from them.
“In order to make room for animal fire victims we’re offering fee waived adoptions on all animals at both of our shelters through October! We would like to continue to help North Bay fire victims so we need your help to clear space at our full shelter. If you’ve been thinking about adopting please visit one of our shelters to find a companion – we have many different types, sizes, and ages of wonderful animals. A group of our field officers were deployed last night to Napa to assist with animal fire victims, and we would like to help them clear more space in their shelter for displaced pets by taking in some of their adoptable animals. Please help us help them by coming in to adopt, or sharing this video! We appreciate your support as we work together as a community to offer as much aid as we can.”

7-Eleven is hosting Bring Your Own Cup Day on Friday and Saturday, when customers can fill any vessel they like with Slurpee for only $1.50.
To best take advantage of the offer, you’ll want to look for the largest cup possible, and in previous BYO Cup Days, some customers have gotten very creative. Tea kettles, oversized beach pails, water pitchers, empty milk jugs, and baseball helmets have all been used for maximizing 7-Eleven customer Slurpee hauls.
It’s not like you can fill up a garbage can with Slurpee, though. There are some restrictions. Namely, any cup must fit upright within the Slurpee machine’s 10-inch hole. Cups must be water-tight, clean, and food-safe as well, and 7-Eleven asks that customers limit themselves to one cup apiece on Bring Your Own Cup Day.
Other than that, it’s up to you to figure out how to best enjoy the special promotion. The deal is in effect from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, August 18, and Saturday, August 19.
