The last few weeks of winter may be upon us, but kitten season is right around the corner. Want to get involved, but don’t know where to start? Register today for our “101” webinar overview of all things kitten to learn how you can save lives this spring.

On February 22, join us for Kitten Season 101, where you’ll learn skills to help kittens of all ages in your community. Whether you’re looking to learn how to provide neonate kittens with specialized, around-the-clock care, or how to socialize older kittens so they’ll be more adoptable, you’ll find it here!

Roses Are Red…..

Pick of the Litter: Juliette

by Ellen Delisle, Senior Manager of Rescue & Welfare – Adoptions

My pick of the litter for February is Juliette. I always catch myself in a better mood after I’ve hung out with her for a little bit. She is so much fun and so so silly. When you take her to the playroom you can see the Boxer in her come out because she zooms around and leads with her front feet. She doesn’t have a tail so when she’s happy her entire body wiggles with excitement. We think there was some trauma in her past and she can be a little bit scared in new situations, but she warms up quickly and is happily licking your face after just a few minutes. Juliette would be a wonderful addition to any family and I’m excited to help her find her people.
