"And we have asked our community to come together and bring kitten season donations, so it’s a really critical time for shelters across the country right now. You know, lots of little kittens. They’re very cute. But they really take up a lot of resources on shelter. So we have our community bringing in kitten formula, kitten toys, kitten blankets, all those things to help us prepare for the hundreds of kittens that will see this season."
