The term “kitten season” may sound like a magical season filled with cute and cuddly baby felines. While baby cats are unbelievably cute, thousands of them can enter shelters within weeks, making kitten season the most challenging time of the year in rescues and shelters nationwide.
Here in Philly, since we experienced a warmer winter than usual, kitten season began early and animal welfare warriors felt the pressure sooner than expected.
With a warmer season and influx of new kittens, local resources were sparse and organizations had to provide even more care than usual.
We remain dedicated to supporting cats and kittens in our community and through kitten season outreach, we’re pleased to provide over $8,000+ to local organizations! To help our local rescue friends provide life-saving and critical care to breeding cats and kittens in need, we set out to support as many organizations as possible.

Interested in helping cats and kittens? You can help too! Donations and foster parents are needed now more than ever. By opening your heart and home up to a kitten (or a litter and maybe mama!) you not only save fragile lives, you also free up valuable resources in the sheltering community.
