KITTEN SEASON IS BACK

It's that time of year again.  Will you become a Hero and help us save precious lives?

Kittens Image Kitten season is the time of year when Momma cats give birth to large litters of kittens.  Moms and kittens have started pouring into our shelter and this year we need to make a difference!  We want to save as many lives as possible and we need your help!  Many of these kittens, for numerous reasons, will get separated from their mother and will not survive without our help. 

We need more foster parents to sign up to help our babies grow and become adoptable.  We have babies of all ages – from those that need to be bottle fed to older kittens who simply need a caring place to grow.  We will provide all the supplies you need to care for these babies.   We also encourage you to reach out to friends and family who might be willing to give some of our kittens a temporary but loving home.

If you want to help please consider becoming a Hero Foster Parent to a mom and her babies, a kitten, or a cat in need.  They all need our help.

For more information about becoming a FOSTER PARENT, please email PBC-ACC-Rescue-Request@pbcgov.org
