Buckets and Buckets of Kittens...Welcome to Kitten Season!

Kitten Season is upon us at PHS and we will soon be flooded with kittens who may be too young to be adopted (they must be 8 weeks old to be available for adoption). What is Kitten Season you ask? Kitten Season is the time of year when cats give birth, filling our shelter with litters and litters of kittens. The Kitten Season begins in spring, peaks in the late spring or early summer and ends in the fall.

Unfortunately, we do not have the space and resources to care for each of these kittens the way they deserve- which is where our Foster Parents come in handy!

Open your heart and home to provide temporary care for a kitten when you become a Foster Parent. We will supply you with food, bowls, blankets and instructions to allow you to successfully care for the kittens. We supply the resources- you supply the love!

Please call us at (757) 397-6004 or email for more information on becoming a Foster Parent!
