Kitten Season’s Impact on Adult Cat Adoptions
So far this year we’ve had 170 kittens in our care. That’s a lot of kittens that needed to find new homes! Thanks to our amazing foster parents, many of the kittens were able to stay to stay with them, freeing up some space at the shelter for adult cats. We’re so thankful that all the adoptable kittens so far have found their new homes!
Because of the available space at the shelter, we were able to help many adult and senior cats this past summer as well. Although many people prefer adopting kittens over cats, we’re very grateful that many of the adult and senior cats in our care were also able to find amazing homes. We are so lucky to be in such a supportive community, and thank everyone who volunteered this past season, donated financially, or opened up their hearts and homes to a new baby or adult cat (or two)!
If you’d like to help the cats in your community but aren’t sure how, here are some ways that you’re able to help:
1. Raising awareness of the need of homes for cats to be adopted into. You can do this by following us on social media and sharing our Facebook posts.
2. Consider if you’re able to adopt a cat, and encourage your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers to also consider adopting.
3. Support LAPS financially by donating today or becoming a monthly donor.
4. Be an active community member by caring for community cats. You can provide food, shelter, and in some instances veterinary care. Spaying and neutering cats in the community is very important, you can read what we’re doing to help with this here.
