Details: Summer is here and so are the kittens! Hundreds of kittens will arrive at Greenhill during this year’s Kitten Season and the community’s help is needed! On Saturday, June 22 from 11 am to 2 pm Greenhill will host a Kitten Shower Adoption Event and Supply Drive. Visitors are invited to meet numerous kittens looking for their fur-ever homes, learn about becoming a volunteer or foster family and enjoy some serious kitten cuddles!
Guests are invited to bring an item from the gift registry. The items listed on the registry are vital supplies Greenhill needs to help care for these kittens. Last year, Greenhill’s foster families cared for 474 kittens and the number is expected to increase this year. Very young kittens are first fostered by one of our 116 foster care families until the kittens are old enough to be adopted. This is typically between 4 to 8 weeks of age after getting vaccinated and spayed or neutered.
Greenhill provides the needed supplies to the foster families. Many kittens are so young their eyes are not yet open, and they need to be bottle fed every two hours. They also require gentle handling and socialization. This helps to build their confidence and comfort around people.
All kitten and adult cat adoptions include: a physical exam and behavioral evaluation by a trained staff, spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, flea and worm treatment, a collar and ID tag, pre-adoption consultation, trackable microchip, 30 day trial of pet insurance, post-adoption support. All cats must be transported home in a carrier (available to purchase for $5) and if it is not a good fit, new pets can be returned to Greenhill at any time.
