About this Special Case

Make a gift today to support the care of kittens in shelter

With the weather warming, that means Spring is just around the corner, & so is kitten season. With a mild winter & early Spring, we expect to have many kittens in care at the shelter.

While these babies are so adorable, our newest additions will mean extra work & financial strain on our resources. Cat overpopulation has been an ongoing issue & we are often full with up to 150 cats at one time, and a waiting list of others to bring in more.

We do not euthanize for space so that means some of our cat residents will spend over a year in our care. At a cost of approx. $25/day x 365 days for over 100 cats, that can add up quickly and be demanding on supplies.

We also incur the cost of spaying & neutering cats in care (as well as dogs & others) before they go home with their adoptive family, to prevent further overpopulation. We vaccinate, deworm and health check all our animals before they go up for adoption as well.

If you could make a gift to cats and kittens in care during our busy kitten season, we would be so grateful. You can also take a look at our list below of supplies needed & donate any to the shelter. Thank you so much.
