Join Us for This Year’s Kitten Shower!

The warm weather of the spring and summer seasons are a critical time for outdoor and community cats and kittens.

“Kitten season” is in full swing and we have seen a significant increase in the number of kittens in need of life-saving care.

These tiny creatures are born outside and at the mercy of the elements. They are at risk of injury, disease, or worse. Left without someone to care for them, they are in serious danger.


Your support gives them a fighting chance. Make a gift today to provide kittens and cats with the care they need
