Kitten season is here and Precious Paws Society of NV urgently needs your help!
Yes, kitten season is a thing, and we are about to be overwhelmed with incoming mama cats and babies. Kitten season refers to a period of time when female cats are giving birth to litters. It typically lasts between the months of April and October; however, it can happen year-round.
How can you help? First and foremost - please, please, please spay and neuter your pets. Yes, it is that important. Did you know 80% of kittens are born outside? That's nearly 70 million kittens every year!
Precious Paws is seeking foster volunteers to help care for the influx of kittens this year. Do you have a little extra space in your home and heart for some short-term fuzzy roommates? A spare bedroom, bathroom, or even closet is all that's needed to set up a cozy space for kittens to grow and thrive. All supplies are provided and we will match you based on your experience. Fostering is a great opportunity to enjoy the company of furry friends without the obligation of pet ownership. Most importantly, fostering saves lives!

If you are unable to foster, you can support our foster program by donating much-needed supplies from our Amazon wish list
