A 6-month-old cat that was rescued in June after being deliberately burned is ready to be adopted from Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control.

Sparkle has been cared for by New Haven Pet Hospital until recently, when she was released to a private foster home where she resides.

Adoption profiles for Sparkle will be accepted for two days only on Monday and Tuesday. A lottery system will be used to select an adoption candidate who will be given an opportunity to meet and interact with Sparkle noon-7 p.m. Wednesday.

Due to the number of people who have expressed an interest, only the family whose profile is drawn from the lottery will be given an opportunity to meet Sparkle and interact with her.

The shelter will select two alternates in case the first candidate declines the adoption. Sparkle will be sent home Thursday after a 10 a.m. news conference and happy-new-home party in the Animal Care & Control Education Center on Hillegas Road.
