The Kittens are Coming!

Every year, from spring through late summer, AHS is inundated with teeny, tiny kittens! It’s Kitten Season, and over the next few months we will welcome hundreds of newborn kittens into our shelter. These babies require constant care and support, and they are the most fragile animals we serve. Our shelter staff members and dedicated foster caregivers are working around the clock to make sure these kittens grow big and strong.

To help raise funds for all of those babies, we’ll be hosting our 8th Annual Kitten Shower, presented by Heritage Ranch by H-E-B and the Nicholas J. Juried Family Foundation, on May 14th! This is a kitten-themed, family-friendly community event featuring adorable kittens and cats, kitten yoga, children’s activities, a bake-off competition, kitten donation drive, and paw-some local vendors. Keep reading to find out more about the activities we are offering this year and how to register to participate. We hope to see you there!
