This is one of the busiest kitten seasons we have seen in years.
We had kittens all year round the past year and we are currently overwhelmed with the abundance of kittens coming through our doors. We have had multiple litters come into our shelter in the past few days, many brought in without the mothers, which creates even more stress on these helpless animals as well as shelter staff.
On Thursday morning, a Good Samaritan brought in a kitten that she saw "falling out" of a car. The kitten that is under our care has both new and old wounds that need attention. We do not know whether he was alone seeking refuge under a car or found himself in a sinister situation. We have another kitten that came in with a broken leg.
With the pandemic, people out of work, and local veterinary offices not taking new patients, we expect the influx of kittens to once again carry on through the year. As of right now, there is no end in sight.
Pretty soon every cat kennel will be filled with strays, ferels, surrenders, and litters of kittens that need vaccines, bloodwork, flea medicine, food, formula, surgery, and/or antibiotics. We are also exhausting our foster network.
Please give what you can so we can continue to save these cats lives and give them the care they need until they are available for adoption. We also desperately need Purina Kitten Chow, cat toys, and milk replacer which can be found on our Chewy or Amazon Wishlists.
