Trixie wants to let everyone know we will be open Wenesday June 30th, from 11am to 5pm as well as Friday, July 2nd, from 4pm to 7:30pm! If you are looking to add a wonderful cat or kitten to your family, stop by our Nay Aug Park facility and meet our crew!
We have continued to be so busy taking care of all of the kittens we have as well as making room to take in more babies who need our help. In the last two weeks we have taken in a number of babies found without moms in unsafe locations. It has been very emotional and at times heartbreaking, but we help as much as we can.
Once they are healthy, spayed and neutered and have recieved all their vaccinations, these little babies will be ready to add their love to a safe and happy home, away from the dangers of the streets.
Please spay and neuter your pets and any strays you feed, and help stop the suffering of so many kittens! Check out Eastern Pennsylvania Animal Alliance for their low-cost spay and neuter clinics.
As part of our mission to reduce the number of feral cats through trap-neuter-return (TNR), each year we find homes for as many adoptable kittens and cats as possible. Some we are able to trap with their momma, who may also be lucky enough to find a home of her own. Others, like little Vinyl, are discovered huddled up all alone, in busy streets and parking lots, and brought into our care. Each individual kitten and litters small and large require an enormous amount of love and resources to bring them up healthy and happy and ready for adoption. Our first “Kitten Shower” adoption event of the summer was held on June 6th at our facility in Nay Aug Park, but with so many kittens, we will be having many more. Please follow our Facebook Page for the most up-to-the-minute information about such events, as well as to see all of the new faces looking for homes!
Our Nay Aug Park facility is also open to visitors every Wednesday from from 11AM to 5PM, or call 570-604-4008 to make an appointment for another time.
As you may expect, we are extremely grateful for all who volunteer their time, financial support, and supplies to help care for all of these kittens and cats. Although we fundraise at every opportunity, we rely so much on your generous donations. To show how your help helps all these babies, we have broken down the costs of supplies for an average litter of four average kittens for their first eight weeks with us:
That comes to $714 for each litter, or $178 for an individual kitten! These costs, of course, do not include utilities for our building, quarantine supplies like gowns, gloves, and booties, or general supplies like litter boxes, scoops, food and water dishes, or toys. We are always thankful for donations of the following supplies, or you can order direct from our Amazon wish-list!
And nobody is more grateful than our kittens!
Although all of the kittens passing through our care are wonderful — and will make wonderful pets in their new homes — the sheer amount of babies serves as a reminder how important it is to spay and neuter both our pet cats and the feral cats who live in our neighborhoods. The Eastern Pennsylvania Animal Alliance offers convenient and affordable spay and neuter services through their travelling clinic. Please check out their website for more information about their upcoming locations!
Looking for a new furry best friend? Well, we have the cat or kitten just for you — or maybe even two!!
Stop by our facility at Nay Aug Zoo Saturday August 22nd, from 11:30AM-5:00PM to meet all all of our wonderful cats and kittens looking for their forever homes! We will be taking every precaution to be sure everyone who visits stays safe and healthy: Everyone MUST wear a mask to enter. We will have hand sanitizer for everyone to use and also gloves if you prefer. If you feel sick or think you have been exposed to Covid-19, please stay home. We will be limiting the number of people in our facility to 8 at a time, so please limit the number of people in your family to 2 if possible. You can always set up another one-on-one visit for the rest of your family to come in.
You may also have to wait outside before you can enter. We will have a limited number of volunteers, who will all be wearing masks and sanitizing frequently touched surfaces often.
