Everyone loves surprises…well that is if they are related to kittens!!!
The San Diego Humane Society in California has just launched a furtastic campaign. The goal is to help raise money for their Day Of Giving, coming up on June 28th, 2018.
All the departments are devising creative ways to raise funds in the days leading up to the deadline.
Their Kitten Nursery team came up with an aMEOWzing plan! They’re stopping by local businesses with a litter of kittens to crash a meeting. This will provide a “purr”fect fix for that mid-day lull!
The first week of May, they crashed the Underground Elephant company in San Diego. Check out these smiles!
One litter of kittens, usually 3-5 fur-babies and no younger than 5 weeks old, are brought to the offices. Although these kittens are not up for adoption yet, having them interact with humans is beneficial for both parties.
If, scratch that…WHEN someone falls in love with the fluffy joy balls, they are encouraged to sign up for fostering whenever possible.
Luckily for the adoptable age kittens at the shelter, they find their furever homes so quickly they are not available for these field trips! That’s a great “problem” to have in the adoption system.
The kitten program, started in 2009, is one of the most successful programs in the country for stray and feral born kittens. Chris Poole, dad to celebricats Cole & Marmalade, visited this dedicated 24-hour kitten nursery in 2015.
A Kitten Yoga fundraising session held last week by their Education department was a big hit as well.
“If the fundraiser is successful I imagine that we will start to take bookings all the time when we have kittens available. But for now it is just for the Day of Giving fundraiser” reports Jackie Noble, the Nursery Supervisor.
