While many people on summer holiday are thinking about beach balls and BBQs, most animal rescue groups in Shanghai are facing a different kind of season: kitten season!
Sounds adorable, right? Unfortunately, there is nothing cute about kitten season. This is the time of year when cats begin to breed, flooding animal shelters with homeless and newborn kittens. It is a tremendous population explosion and, virtually overnight, the number of kittens begins to exceed the number of homes available.
This month we feature two rescued kittens of this Summer Season 2014: Yiyi and Joan!
Yiyi is a three-color female kitten (about 4 months old), and Joan is a golden/honey female kitten (about 3 months old). They have been treated for fleas and worms, and already have their first vaccination. Yiyi is a lively and sweet girl, while Joan is quiet and a little timid.
Yiyi was found in the parterre of a residential compound. Lots of people passed by, but no one stopped for her even though she was crying. Joan was found by a bridge, crying hard maybe because she was lost without her mom. It was very dangerous for Joan to be there alone since there is a busy street by the bridge. Fortunately, these two gorgeous kittens were rescued by their human moms, received medical care and were sent to the PPAR Shelter where now they are waiting for their loving permanent homes.
If you like any of them and want to give a little cute kitten a warm and permanent loving home, please contact us at: [email protected]
Please notice that all potential adopters need to contact PPAR by email first. If they agree on PPAR’s adoption requirements, then PPAR will arrange a visit for them at the shelter to meet all the adoptable cats and kittens (generally during the adoption weekends).
PPAR holds Adoption Weekends (every Saturday and Sunday), from 13:00 to 17:00 hrs., at the PPAR Shelter located in Minhang District, Shanghai. Phone: 021-5480-1699.
