Springtime is a time where kittens overflow at local animal shelters. To help ease the stress that it puts on the shelter, the Peoria Humane Society hosts a kitten shower every June.
The idea is for it to be like a baby shower for the homeless little kittens. The kitten shower promotes adoption of the homeless little ones and also encourages those that attend to bring a "shower gift" of items that are needed to care for all the kittens until they find a home. A wishlist is posted each year for participants to see what the shelter needs at that time.
It is a really fun event that includes refreshments, "kitten art" pawpaintings, and of course...face time with some adorable kittens! Stay tuned to our events page for the date of the next kitten shower.
