No-kill shelter in Oakland looking for foster families for kittens
OAKLAND, Ore. -- Kitten season will soon be upon us and that means local shelters will need all the help they can get.
A no-kill shelter in Oakland says within the next month, they will start getting 50 to a hundred calls a day.
They see an influx of kittens in the spring time and things don't slow down until mid-summer.
"They're not spayed and neutered," says S.O.S.C.A.T. president Susan Wilson. "The secret is to get their females spayed and neutered. That is the most important thing they can do."
Wilson says there are 13 times more kittens than puppies in the U.S.
Officials say 3,500 kittens are born in the country every hour.
S.O.S.C.A.T. is looking for foster families to house the incoming kittens until they are adopted.
