The 2017 Kitten Shower was a hit! Around One hundred members from the community visited our kitten nursery as well made supply donations to help us make it through the season.
Our nursery was able to raise over $1,250 in funds and an estimated $2,000 of in-kind donations.
In addition to all the wonderful support that was given by the community, we were also able to find homes for Five little furr balls. FYI – even though the shower is over, we still have a few kittens available through our foster-to-adopt program. *Adoptions still come with a “Kitty Swag Bag” from Purina full of toys, litter, food, and more.
The event wouldn’t have been complete without our nursery staff taking in a few kittens that some people thought would be okay to leave behind (without permission). Fortunately our neonate staff was ready and trained for this and were able to rush a litter to the emergency veterinarian, run intake for a few who immediately went into foster care, and take a few critical care ones into the nursery.
All of the behind the scenes work went on while our amazing Development and Event staff keep the party rolling – they’re also the masterminds behind all the amazing events we have.
For those of you that came down that day and those who wanted to and still supported our kitties some way some how, Thank You! You’re all amazing and beautiful people, not just for supporting our organization, but for standing along side us as we work late nights, long hours, and infinite amount of days so that we can Save the Kitties.
