Local humane society at max capacity

MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY — Kitten season is here and no, we are not kidding. It is the time of year when stray cats are everywhere and shelters are struggling to find space for them all.

As the kitten and cat population increases, so does the need for supplies and food.

The McCracken County Humane Society is at max capacity, with 85 cats and kittens. If you are thinking about adopting, now may be the perfect time.

If you can not adopt or donate, spay or neuter your cats to help keep the population down because kittens can get pregnant as early as four to five months.

You can also donate your time. Volunteer with your shelter; they are always looking for extra help. They also accept monetary donations if you do not have a lot of free time. You can also help by donating food. Shelters and humane societies everywhere are struggling to keep their pantries stocked, so donating dog or cat food is another way to help.

The McCracken County Humane Society is in need of Paté cat food  (pictured below), blankets, towels and cat trees.

The humane society is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, click here or call the McCracken County Humane Society at (270) 443-5923.
