San Diego Humane Society hits a high in kitten adoption


At the height of it we had six of our
dog rooms that were housing extra kittens and that was maybe about 35 extra kittens.
And then we have the kitten corral, which at any given point might have
about 30 kittens or so max. And then we had a couple of the
cat rooms as well which would usually be housing the cats that also had a few kittens or so. So, almost 100ish, like maybe around 80. And with the kittens, yeah, sometimes
they come back and they’re like, I think, you know this cat could use like maybe motherly figure.
You know, we definitely had a lot more people coming in–they hadn’t thought about getting an older cat and
we would bring them in you know, have some interaction with the
other cats and see, oh, you know, they’re very kitten-like, just a
little bit older. And then also with older cats you get to see their personality a
little bit more, it’s not so much a random draw, so we definitely had more coming in. When kittens come to us do all the vaccinations–they’re up-to-date
on their vaccinations, we spay and neuter, we also implant the
microchips as well. And then part of our contract is we don’t
knowingly adopt out a sick or injured animal so if the vets would happen to catch anything on the way out, you can bring it back within the fourteen days and we also care it. So, when we adopt them out we’re adopting them out as healthy kittens.
