Posted on Monday, May 6th

2019 Kitten Season: a Full-Blown Population Explosion! The phones began ringing and emails began to fly in some time in February.

It happens every year, but with this year’s early spring the onslaught is much, much more severe! We don’t have time to ponder why. We just have to act, and act now. Every single call represents five, and sometimes even eight innocent lives in urgent need of help. In the last… READ MORE >
