Winona Humane Society holds Kitten & Puppy Shower

WINONA, Minn. (WKBT) - The Winona Area Humane Society is holding "Pampered Paws: A Kitten & Puppy Shower" as the demand for supplies has greatly increased recently.

Last year the organization saw over 60 kittens enter their shelter in a span of four months. The shelter also received eight puppies and seven pregnant cats. Peak season for the shelter will be this summer with the need for supplies and foster families at it's highest.

The shelter is throwing a Kitten and Puppy Shower called Pampered Paws at the American Legion on Sunday, April 8 from 1 to 4 p.m. The event will feature games, raffles, prizes and a puppy photo booth.

 “When kittens or puppies come into our shelter, our staff work around the clock to keep them healthy, happy, and loved.” said Kelly Sackmaster, Cat Director.  “But raising kittens or puppies in a shelter is not the ideal environment for them to survive.  Thus, foster families are vital to our organization and the well being of our little ones.”   When given a foster home, animals learn love and compassion from humans, and receive the warmth of true home.  This can also help build their immune systems so they have a greater chance to survive.

Admission to the event is free, but attendees are asked to bring supplies
