Kittens Expected at the Maddie's Pet Rescue Project Kitten Shower

Each year at this time, WNY area rescue groups and shelters are flooded with thousands of cats and kittens. To manage the influx, the Maddie’s® Pet Rescue Project is hosting a Kitten Shower on July 28th from 11:00 – 2:00 at the Eastern Hills Mall. The event will take place in front of the SPCA Adoption Center and Dipson Theaters.

City of Buffalo Animal Shelter, HEART, SPCA Serving Erie County, and Ten Lives Club will be present with cats of all ages and colors. Adopters who bring a “gift” to the shower, such as kitten milk replacer, litter and litter pans, or towels, will receive a reduced adoption fee. Adoption fees, which will vary by organization, include the cost of spay/neuter surgery and vaccinations.

Kitten season is a tremendous drain on the scarce resources of local shelters and rescues. Newborn kittens are in a state of compromised health and need round the clock care. The community is encouraged to help combat the problem by spaying and neutering their pets. Through the Maddie’s® Spay/Neuter Project, medicaid recipients and feral caregivers can spay or neuter a cat for just $10 at area veterinary hospitals. For a list of participating veterinarians, visit www.operationpets.org.

For those who are not able to make a permanent commitment, foster volunteers are desperately needed to allow vulnerable kittens to grow up to a proper size. Once the kittens reach two to three pounds, they can be returned, spayed or neutered, and adopted. All of the Maddie’s® Project partners provide their volunteers with the food and supplies necessary for a successful foster placement.

If you are ready to add a loving companion to your family, stop by the Eastern Hills Mall on July 28th. For more details, visit www.MaddiesErieCounty.org.
