Bracing for kitten season, it’s not too late to nip and tuck!

Bracing for kitten season, it’s not too late to nip and tuck!

Sacramento, CA: The Sacramento City Front Street shelter is bracing for the annual onslaught of tiny, homeless kittens. Each year, thousands of unwanted cats and kittens come through the doors of the shelter, brought in often by good intentioned people that have no idea what to do when either their pet gives birth or they stumble across a litter of newborns.

As we prepare for the increased demand for shelter services, we would like to remind cat owners that there are many resources available to prevent those unexpected pregnancies before they happen.  Spaying and neutering is one of the key ways to lessen the number of unwanted animals born each year and ultimately reduce the number of animals that end up in our shelters.  

The City of Sacramento offers city residents very low cost or no cost services that help people with income constraints get their pets spayed or neutered.
