We’re expecting! Tons of litters of kittens, that is.
Kitten Season is the period between April and October where shelters are overwhelmed with stray or abandoned kittens. Kittens that end up in the shelter require a lot of attention and care. Our solution is to place the
kittens into the hands of some very dedicated fosters who will give them the proper TLC during crucial times.
Ways to help our community cats:
- Spay and neuter your pets – Cats can reproduce as early as 4 months old and can become pregnant every 4 months thereafter.
- Get Involved with Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) in your area – After being spayed/neutered and vaccinated, the captured cat is released back to the area where they were captured. TNR is an effective way to reduce feral and stray cat populations without having the euthanize thousands of cats each year.
- Leave newborn kittens with their mothers – Survival rates for newborn kittens without their mother, even in a shelter environment, are very low. If you cannot capture the mother with the kittens, wait until the kittens are about 5 weeks old before bringing them inside or to an animal shelter.
- Foster kittens – Team up with the Humane Society and become a kitten foster caregiver today!
If you are interested in helping us, please consider shopping our kitten registry so that we can stock our foster parents up with the supplies they need to nurture the kittens they foster.
