The cost to care for these unwanted felines becomes staggering, humane society officials said. On a regular basis, more than 1,500 pounds of cat litter are used each month during “kitten season,” and the numbers of supplies needed often multiplies faster than the cats.
Harbor Humane Society depends on the community for donations of cat food and supplies. There is an urgent need for kitten milk replacement (KMR), wet kitten food, flea foam, kitten bottles and non-clumping cat litter.
More than 400 homeless pets find their way to the shelter on a monthly basis.
Tax-deductible donations can be dropped off at Harbor Humane Society, 14345 Bagley St. in West Olive. For more information, visit www.harborhumane.org or call 616-399-2119.
