‘Kitten Season’ comes to Ohio

Springtime and early summer are known as “Kitten Season” here in Ohio. During this time of year, unaltered cats reproduce prolifically. A female cat can begin reproducing as young as five to six months of age, and, during Kitten Season she will come back into heat every 14-21 days until she is bred.
In order for the Humane Society of Adams County to be able to take in pregnant cats, nursing moms, and newborn kittens, foster homes must already be lined up, since the shelter is not an ideal place for a new mother to raise her babies.
Orphan puppies and kittens require round-the-clock care which is only available in a foster home setting. Did you know that orphaned puppies and kittens must be stimulated to eliminate waste? This is usually done by the mother cat or dog, but humans can stimulate baby mammals to eliminate by using a warm wet paper towel to mimic a mother’s gentle tongue.
In addition to the knowledge necessary to be a successful pet foster, the Humane Society of Adams also supplies all necessary equipment and veterinary care. Supplying foster homes with the right tools to help baby animals is expensive. Please consider helping local kittens and puppies by donating funds to buy equipment, or by becoming a foster yourself.
Contact the animal shelter in West Union at (937) 544-8585 for more information. You can also help by donating funds to purchase the following items:
• Feeding bottles ($2.99 for 2 oz.; $4.99 for 4 oz., with bottle brush & nipples)
• Powdered KMR (kitten milk replacer) ($32.99 for 28 oz; $64.99 for 5 lbs)
• Powdered Esbilac (puppy milk replacer) ($27.99 for 28 oz; $65.86 for 5 lbs)
• Heating disk ($27.99 for microwavable heating disk that holds heat for 6 hours)
You may also donate the following items directly to the Shelter: Kitten Chow, Puppy Chow, Clean towels (can be used), and paper towels.
Once the kittens are weaned, they must be vaccinated ($17), dewormed ($10), and sterilized ($35 for males; $45 for females) before they can be adopted. Donations that help cover these expenses allow the funds received from adoption fees to stretch further to help more homeless pets.
Checks can be made to “HSAC” and sent to HSAC, P.O. Box 245, West Union, OH 45693, or you can donate securely through PayPal online by visiting the HSAC website at adamscountyanimals.org.
