RSVP by Apr. 3 for the April 7 event

Berkeley, California (Wednesday, March 27, 2019) - With spring here, so are the kittens - in abundance. So as we care for these furballs without a home at Berkeley's animal shelter, we're hosting a "kitten shower" to recruit supplies, donations and foster homes.

The April 7 event will have presentations about kitten season, its community impact, kitten development and kitten fostering. We'll also have information about Berkeley Animal Care Services' program to trap, spay or neuter and then return untamed cats to the area they were found. You'll learn how to become involved and offer support in a variety of ways. 2019-03-27 Kitten shower 2

Because it's a "shower," the event will be festive and fun. Come join us:  

Kitten Shower at Berkeley Animal Care Services
April 7, 2019, 11am - 1pm
11-12pm: Mingle, meet others, ask questions and enjoy refreshments
12pm-1: Presentations
1 Bolivar Drive

Thousands of kittens come each spring to Bay Area animal shelters needing immediate care. Many are weeks old or less with unopened eyes and requiring formula bottle-feeding every 4 hours.  As a public animal shelter, Berkeley Animal Care Services takes in all animals, including dozens of these kittens annually. Dedicated staff, volunteers, foster volunteers and donors are critical to help these kittens survive until adopted into permanent homes. 

Whether you can come or not, think about whether you can provide something for the Kitten Shower from the wish list, which includes formula, snuggle disks, and more. Please RSVP to Friends of Berkeley Animal Care Services, which is co-sponsoring the event, by emailing kittens@friendsofbacs.org by April 3. Space is limited.

Come on out on April 7 to learn about and help support these kittens!
