Ready or not, here they come!
Spring in Pittsburgh means one thing for sure, *𝐊𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐧 𝐒𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧.* Rescues and shelters are inundated with kittens from Spring to Winter. While yes, these babies are sweet and adorable, they also significantly outnumber the resources available for them. We are currently facing a very serious overpopulation problem and every litter born contributes to the number of cats in desperate need of homes.
𝐂𝐡𝐞𝐜𝐤 𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐞 𝐧𝐨𝐭-𝐬𝐨-𝐟𝐮𝐧 𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐬:
SO WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Demonstrate EMPATHY and PATIENCE!
We all love animals. We hate to see an animal suffer. We want to do what is best. We cannot do it all.
Rescues and shelters need supporters like YOU to be empathetic. We never want to turn a pet away, but sometimes, we must. It is a harsh reality that there are more animals in need than there are resources available. We need you to be patient when you find a stray pet or you need to surrender your pet. We have limited space and resources.
Your empathy and patience help us to continue to provide the best quality of care for shelter pets. Your empathy and patience help rescuers to continue the never-ending battle of pet overpopulation.
NOBODY CAN DO EVERYTHING, BUT EVERYONE CAN DO SOMETHING.
