The Humane Society’s “Community Kitten Shower” has begun and will run through April 18th. The donation drive is being held at locations throughout Livingston County as the Humane Society is “expecting” kittens.

“Kitten season” begins in early spring and lasts through the fall- the time of the year cats typically give birth. During this time, extra supplies and donations are needed to support the homeless litters that flood animal shelters and rescue groups. The Humane Society of Livingston County fostered over 100 kittens last year, yet some still had to be turned away due to a lack of resources. The organization does not receive county, state or federal funding, making donation events critical to operations.

The Humane Society has posted a wish list on their website of the most-needed items, which can be dropped off at their location on Dorr Road in Genoa Township, Pet Supplies Plus in Brighton or Howell, and The Wild Indoors in Pinckney. A kitten registry has also been set up on Amazon and monetary donations can be made online.
