Happy Adopt a Shelter Cat month! All over the country there are special promotions to get homeless cats adopted to their forever homes. Why June? Well, around this time of year the shelters are flooded with incoming litters of kittens – kitten season is upon us!
As part of my job, I get to speak to people all over the country representing all varieties of charities for animals that are trying to find homes for these homeless cats. One thing is certain; kitten season is brutal this year. This year’s mild winter has resulted in an early and fruitful reproductive season. This is bad news for those of us trying to reduce the euthanasia rate, as females will likely have another chance to breed before the summer is complete. Well, that is unless we get to them first.
For the remainder of June, FiXiT is running a special fundraising campaign for spaying cats during the prime of kitten season. Our goal is to spay 50 female cats this month! Let’s not let mama’s breed again or let the young ones make next year’s kitten season even worse.
50 new cats need help every week on GetYourFix. Here are just a few of the animals on GetYourFix that could benefit from your contribution.
