Help us give our shelter kittens a healthy start!

We will be feeding lots of kittens this season so this month we’re asking for kitten food. With each bag of Purina dry kitten food donated you’ll be entered in our raffle. At the end of April we will draw 5 names giving away 1 free Kitten Package ($90-$120 value) and 4 free cat spay or neuters. (These will be transferable and good until 10/31/16.) Thank you so much!

Donations can be dropped off at either shelter during business hours.
Hickory: Monday – Saturday, 11am until 6pm
Newton: Monday – Friday, 11am until 6pm and Saturday 10am until 3pm
