It may be hot and sunny outside but it's raining cats inside the AWA!  The Animal Welfare Association needs your help finding homes for an influx of cats and kittens in South Jersey this month.

The AWA, a non-profit organization, during "kitten season" when feral and unaltered cats reproduce, says it's not unusual to have as many as 50 cats brought to them in a single day. The burden of caring for the flood of cats and kittens can be overwhelming!

The numbers of cats and kittens sheltered and seeking adoptive homes doubles!  The AWA, went from 125 cats and kittens needing shelter and care each month to over 340!

You can help give a home or even foster one of these adorable felines during Animal Welfare Association's annual Raining Cats adopt-a-thon from July 1 to August 30.  Help AWA reach their goal of adopting out 300 cats and kittens during this time period.

You can help! Become involved and help make a difference.



Here's how:

  1. Donate money or supplies. Donate to help shelter cats and kittens here.
  2. Foster a neonatal kitten. It's the most rewarding job you'll ever love! Learn more here on the AWA Foster page.
  3. Spay or neuter your own cat or feral cats living in your neighborhood. Kittens can get pregnant at  only 4 months old. Visit here for information on spaying/neutering feral cats.
  4. Adopt a cat or kitten. Adoption fees will be drastically reduced during July 1 through August 31.

$50 for kittens and $25 for cats. Visit the shelter or see photos and stories on AWA's Adoption Page.

The AWA does such wonderful work.  If you are a pet lover, or have room in your home to love and care for one of these homeless cats, I really encourage you to adopt from the AWA this month during Raining Cats.
