Kitten season is fast approaching and what better way to kick it off then to have a baby kitten shower at the Humane Society of Washington County.
“Just adopt. There’s so many animals that need homes that are right here in the shelters,” said Hagerstown Resident Alisha Resendiz.
The fast approaching kitten season brought animal lovers together to raise donations for the incoming kittens to the Washington County Humane Society’s foster care program.
“We need a lot of kitten safe litter. Usually Yesterdays News kitty litter, some kind of pellet litter because little kittens can’t have a clumping clay litter,” said Foster Care Coordinator Karen Poston.
Shelter officials say this month is the time where they get all of their donations for the year. Kitten season typically starts when the weather warms and cats are said to reproduce at a faster rate than during the colder months.
“We’ve had three fosters so far and she just loves them and now we’re getting puppies today,” said Hagerstown Resident Michelle Wolf.
Alisha Resendiz is a foster care parent and came with her two sons. Resendiz says her family adopted their cat from the shelter last year, and while they say they’re going to wait to adopt a dog their favorite part of the day is to see the furry feline friends.
The humane society will continue collecting donations until the end of April.
