NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Several cats rescued from a pet hoarder now need new families to provide them with loving and caring homes, announced the ASPCA, which will be hosting two adoption events in Brooklyn on Sunday, August 4, 2013.

Fifty felines are available for adoption at the concurrent events, dubbed "Summer Lovin'" because some of the cats have been given "Greese"-inspired names including Danny, Sandy, Kenickie and Rizzo.

"By considering all aspects of this particular case, we were able to truly understand the obstacles this person was facing and how they affected his ability to care for his pets," said Allison Cardona, director of the ASPCA's Cruelty Intervention Advocacy program. "This is exactly the type of situation that the CIA program was built for -- helping animals in need by providing critical resources to the people in charge of their care. We are very excited that these resilient and lovable cats are now ready to find new homes."

The adoption fee will be waived for this event, except for kitten under eight months.

All cats will be either spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated. The cats will get a free follow-up veterinary exam at either the ASPCA's Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital or One Love Animal Hospital.

If you are interested in adopting a cat, you must be 21 or older and bring a government-issued photo ID, proof of address, and contact information for a personal reference.

The ASPCA has teamed with One Love Animal Hospital and Sean Casey Animal Rescue for this event, which will be held Sunday, August 4, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at One Love Animal Hospital, 8209 3rd Avenue, Bay Ridge as well as One Love Animal Hospital, 317 Atlantic Avenue, Boerum Hill.

    Out of over 500 hopefuls only a handful will join the Brooklyn Nets Kids Dance Team. The Nets held auditions this week at LIU Brooklyn. Adorable Bronx native Arielle was turned away last year but this time around she's made it through to the final round of the auditions. But even those who were on the team last year still have to try out.

    Public Advocate Letitia James says a 3-ounce camera, if used correctly, could be a key tool in improving community and police relations. She showed off one of the cameras she believes NYPD patrol officers need to be wearing. She said that the cameras would be a "win-win" for the public, transparency, police accountability improving police community relations, reducing civil liability.
