Kitten Season 2020

Kitten Season sounds wonderful, but it is a tragic situation. It’s the time of year when thousands of unwanted litters of kittens are born. These kittens often find their way to overcrowded shelters where they are often euthanized. Others roam the streets in search of food and shelter, often being subject to illness and injury. Wolfie and Nicholas are two kittens whose stories could have been drastically different if they had not found their way to our Pet Health Centers.
