KittensWe are expecting (kittens)!

Join us for a morning full of kittens! Help us prepare for kitten season by providing life saving kitten supplies. We are expecting to take in lots of babies, but especially teeny kittens who need A LOT of care.

With your help, we can provide all the necessary supplies, support, and love they need until they find their fur-ever home. 

PLUS don't miss out on the chance to play with some adoptable kittens! This is a FREE event, though we ask that you RSVP via the ticket link below.
