About Us


"Kitten Season" is on the way!  Last year, the first kitten of “Kitten season” came to CVHS in March.  The kitten, Jordan, has since been adopted into a fantastic home. This year we will receive TONS more kittens, and they will grow up in foster care before going up for adoption.  We need: WET kitten food, kitten formula, and kitten bottles.  We also need kitten foster families!

Did you know:
“Kitten Season” is the unofficial name for the mating season for cats, and it can last from March to November!
The average size of a litter of kittens is 4-6 kittens.
A female cat can begin having kittens at only 6 months of age.
In 7 years, 1 female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 cats!
There are more kittens than there are families that are ready to take them into loving homes.
During “Kitten Season” it is difficult to find homes for adult cats.

There is only one solution!  Spay or Neuter your pets!
