We’re delighted to invite you to our spring Kitten Shower this Saturday from noon to 5PMÂ at our Adoption Center, 31 Glendale Avenue in Asheville!Â Enjoy yummy snacks,Â family-friendly games, prizes, and more!Â The shower is free and open to the public.
We expect to have up toÂ 1,500 kittens arriveÂ at our door this year.
Please help us by bringing supplies or donating fundsÂ so we won’t ever have to turn a kitten away this kitten season.
Bring a gift(s) from our WishlistÂ and you’ll be entered into the raffle for a $100 gift certificate to our Re-Tail storeÂ for Brother Wolf branded merchandise!Â (Five tickets per donated item;Â for cash donations, five tickets for every $20 value.)
Kitten SeasonÂ – the time of year when cats start giving birth in huge numbers – is just starting here in Western North Carolina, but we’re already seeing lots of pregnant cats and young kittens likeÂ Garnet, pictured at right.
Garnet was orphanedÂ at just a few weeks old, and her prognosis was not good. She and her siblings Lapis, Marble, and Tigerâ€™s EyeÂ came to our adoption center for intensive care, surrogate feeding, and quarantine to protect their delicate immune systems.
We’re delighted to report that two weeks later,Â all four babiesÂ are doing well and growing like weeds!
Of course, caring for kittens like Garnet is costly – and can take weeks of TLC in a foster home.Â At our spring Kitten Shower, we invite you toÂ learn more about fostering kittens,Â meet our foster team and volunteers, and sign up! Fosters provide temporary safe housing until kittens are old enough to be adopted.
Canâ€™t make the Shower but want to help?
Visit the Amazon Wishlist hereÂ to have gifts sent right to the kittens,Â or stop by TargetÂ (located right nextÂ toÂ the Adoption Center)Â to shop from our Baby Registry!Â OrÂ Make a financial donationÂ to help with medical care hereÂ -Â the average cost to prepare a kitten for adoption isÂ $200!
IÂ hope to see you there, and thank you for caring about the babies!
PS.Â There areÂ many different fostering opportunities, including bottle-feeding newborns, socializing semi-socialÂ kittens, and providing safe spaces for nursing mothers with their babies. For more information about fostering, visit www.bwar.org/volunteer/fosterÂ or email email@example.com.
