Whitby, ON (April 26, 2024) – To help prepare for kitten season, a time when animal shelters typically see an increase in the number of tiny felines coming into their care, the Humane Society of Durham Region is hosting a “kitten shower” tomorrow. 

Drop by the animal centre on Saturday, April 27 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. to meet animals available for adoption, learn more about volunteer opportunities, and discover the many community programs and services offered by the Humane Society of Durham Region. Animal lovers are encouraged to make a donation, drop off items such as towels and blankets, or purchase some much-needed items from the animal centre’s kitten wish list. 

“We want to be prepared to care for the many cats and kittens we anticipate could arrive in our care over the coming months,” says Blair Budgell, Events Coordinator with the Humane Society of Durham Region “We are so thankful for our community’s support and we look forward to welcoming our friends to the animal centre for this fun event.” 

The Humane Society of Durham Region is a registered charity that does not receive annual government funding and depends on the generosity of donors to help change the lives of animals in need.
