Help MHS with Kitten Season
Litters of unwanted kittens flood shelters each spring and summer
April 27, 2017
When the weather turns warm, several thousand Michigan homeowners wake up one morning to discover a litter of kittens underneath their porch. Kittens are a delight. But seven of them? Under my porch? It leaves some people scratching their heads.
It's not only in Michigan – shelters all over the country are flooded with kittens this time of year. Pet overpopulation is a huge problem.
Help is needed to prepare for this massive influx of kittens.
Your donation today can help provide shelter, food, kitty litter, vaccinations, sterilization and other medical care. It's a huge project and we will need your support!

Every spring, the Michigan Humane Society and other animal welfare organizations brace for this most challenging time of the year for saving feline lives – when our animal care centers and caring foster homes are filled not only with homeless cats as we are year-round, but endless litters of unwanted kittens, all needing a second chance.
Just one unspayed cat, her mate and their offspring can produce thousands of homeless animals. The result is far more cats and kittens than there are available good homes.
So please, watch this video and share it with friends, or your porch could be next.
