It's March Madness at spcaLA! The 135-year-old animal welfare organization is getting in on the b-ball action with a bracket of cat teams complete with kitty players. During March Madness, spcaLA is offering two adoption specials for felines. With Double Dribble, you can adopt a team of two cats for the adoption fee of one. If you choose Ready for the Big Leagues, you can adopt an all-star -- a cat one year or older for $25 off the adoption fee. All cats come spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, with a certificate for a free health exam.

Of the Elite 8, it has come down to the Black Cats and the Calicos. Though the Tabbies were knocked out in the first round, the Tabby Team Captain, Lola has not let that shake her confidence. Lola is a beautiful 1-year-old kitty with lots of sass. She is a diva and LOVES attention. She truly is a champion and is looking to become a permanent member of your home team.spcaLA has plenty of dogs up for adoption as well, and Lizzy, a Terrier mix, is anxious to find her forever home. In her own words, "I am a sweet 1-year-old girl with lots of energy and love to give! I am good with other dogs and would be happy in a home with older kids. I am very smart and would love to learn agility! Please come by and see what makes me so special."

Both Lola and Lizzy are available at spcaLA's P.D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village & Education Center. Potential adopters can also check out Racer's Edge Karting this Sunday from 12pm to 3pm. spcaLA is having a mobile adoption, a needed items drive and participants may win a go-kart race against Rami Jaffee of the Foo Fighters.
