The Cutest Season is Upon Us: Kitten Season

Did you know there is a whole season dedicated to kittens? It is a naturally occurring, albeit long, season from April through November during which kittens are typically born.

EASEL Animal Rescue League is now looking for forever homes for their darling kittens, as well as foster homes from anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months while pets wait to be adopted.

EASEL is a non-profit animal welfare organization that reduces the euthanization of unwanted animals in Mercer County, as well as helps to prevent increased unwanted animal population rates.  Last year, EASEL placed over 200 cats and kittens and nearly 100 dogs, sparing them from untimely demise.

“The Ewing Animal Shelter is the only no-kill shelter in the county because of EASEL,” stated Dr. Georgia Arvanitis, EASEL Board of Directors Vice President and Grants Director.

The all-volunteer network of concerned residents at EASEL provide assistance in: trap/neuter/release of feral cats; fostering unwanted cats, dogs and horses; and adoption days at PETCO, Rosedale Mills and Precious Pets.

EASEL is a grant recipient of the Hopewell Harvest Fair (HHF), which is more than a one-day event but also a grant-giving non-profit organization. The grant from the HHF will go toward the costs of providing this year’s kittens their needed 6-week vaccinations prior to adoption.

You can find adoption information above and also on EASEL’s website. All of their pets are spayed or neutered, are up-to-date on age appropriate shots, and are also microchipped.

If you don’t have room in your life (or have allergies like the author of this article) but want to give to EASEL, they have a donation form online as well as a varied “wish list” of in-kind donation items they would like to receive.
