The HSWC Foster Care program is launching the kitten supply drive with a special Kitten Shower Kick-Off Party.

All are invited to attend and encouraged to bring a donation. The most urgently needed donations are Purina Kitten Chow, canned kitten food, Yesterday’s News kitty litter, baby blankets, kitten baby bottles and formula. Or shop from our Kitten Shower Amazon Wish List.

Everyone in attendance will receive a raffle ticket, and all who bring a donation with receive an additonal raffle ticket. Prizes will be awarded, including one free adoption to be redeemed within 30 days. There will also be face painting and shower-themed games! Snacks and drinks will be provided.

Before leaving the shelter, donors can submit a name that will be given to a kitten who enters the shelter during this kitten season.

Baby kitten season typically starts when the weather warms and intact cats reproduce at a more rapid rate than they do during more frigid temperatures. Continuing during the spring and summer, it is not uncommon for HSWC’s number of animal intakes to quadruple during this time. Because infant animals require more time and resources than adults, they are typically cared for offsite by volunteer foster families until they are ready for adoption. The donations received during the baby shower will help supply these volunteers with the essential items needed to care for the influx of kittens in their care.
