No Rest For The Weary: The kitten storm has landed

By Daniel Quagliozzi

Kittens, kittens, kittens.....aren't they so cute? Everytime I see one, and let me tell you...I see my fair share everyday, I just want to kiss em' all! A kitten never gets dull. They just keep coming in like gremlins after you spill water on them. *Poof* there's another one!

The problem with all of the kittens flooding our shelter is that they take much needed space away from our adult cats that trickle in at a "slower" but steady speed all year round. Not to mention... the impact it has on our staff that tends to their feeding, cleaning and welfare. This is the way it goes every year when the California sun gets hotter and the days get longer. We are the animal welfare warriors that brave the storms and come back for more and more and more.

The following video explains The commitment of the San Francisco SPCA. Grab a tissue and a loved one. This is going to make you emotional. I ask that you take the time to watch it all the way through and reflect on it afterwards. Our dedication to the homeless animals of San Francisco is only possible with your help.

If you are interested in Fospice or Adoption, please come to The San Francisco SPCA and help us find homes for the older and special needs cats that are being overlooked.

There are currently 78 cats looking for loving homes at our shelter!!!!!!

Did you know that there is no national SPCA or parent or umbrella organization that provides financial support to The SF/SPCA? Each SPCA and Humane Society are completely unrelated organizations. We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, independently chartered organization that is not affiliated with any other "SPCA" or humane society. When you make the choice to give a donation this year, please consider contributing to the SF/SPCA directly. The animals we care for really need your help. DONATE NOW!
