Furbaby Kitten Shower

Posted by: | Posted on: May 5, 2017

At the New Albany Animal Shelter kitten season is beginning quicker than ever thanks to a mild winter! While cats can get pregnant year round, in early summer shelters around the world begin to see an influx of nursing moms and babies.

In most cases, litters of kittens must stay at the shelter for several weeks until they are weaned and large enough for surgery. Mother cats and kittens may have a harder time handling the stress of a shelter environment and may not be able to maintain their babies or their own health for an extended stay.

To welcome all of the new furbaby families and fosters, the New Albany Floyd County Animal Shelter is hosting a Furbaby Kitten Shower on Saturday, May 13th  from 4-5 PM. Come and enjoy lots of shower games, refreshments, and of course kittens! Families can also sign up to become Furbaby Fosters!  Admission is free, but a donation to welcome the new babies would be appreciated.
