The Montgomery County Animal Shelter is starting to see kittens come into the shelter.
As MCAS starts preparing for an influx of kittens in the next months, they will again need your help and commitment to lifesaving.
We can all work together to make the best decisions for our community’s homeless kittens – please note that the best decision often isn’t to bring kittens to the shelter.
There is no better caretaker to a kitten than his or her mother.
It is critical to keep kittens with their mothers until they are around 8 weeks old.
If needed, it is safe to bring 8-week-old kittens to the shelter to be adopted into loving homes.
However, fosters will be greatly needed at times when the shelter runs out of room to house healthy kittens and when pregnant cats and kittens who are sick and injured are in need of extra, in-home care.
MCAS hopes this information will help you decide what to do if you come across stray kittens.
Please help MCAS save lives as they begin the start of kitten season.
