kittensIt has been an incredibly busy kitten season and shelters across Florida are struggling to meet the resulting demands. Shelters are full, rescues are full and many people are at a loss for what to do with litters they have from unaltered pet cats or that they have found on the streets.

In answer to the numerous calls for help we have received the Humane Society of Tampa Bay is offering free Kitten Kits to the public. These kits give individuals the tools they need to care for kittens in their homes until they are old enough to be spayed or neutered, receive vaccinations, and enter our adoption program (normally at 8 weeks of age). Kits can be picked up at our Animal Intake Building (3607 N. Armenia Ave) between 9am – 5pm every day, and include the following items:

  • Kitten Formula
  • Bottles
  • Litter Box and Litter
  • Dry and Wet Kitten Food

We also offer a Littermates Program that offers free spay/neuter of adult animals remaining in the home when you surrender their litter to us for adoption.
