April is the start of kitten season at the Humane Society of Southwestern Michigan.
That is when hundreds of unwanted kittens are dropped off at the shelter.
Humane Society officials say many pet owners will not spay or neuter their cats.
When their pets have a litter they will leave them at the shelter. “Springtime is usually when it gets warmer .Cats are roaming, and that's typically the time frame when it starts for us to get more of an intake into the shelter,” says shelter veterinarian, Michael Anderson. He also says you can help by getting your cats spayed or neutered before they reach puberty.
That is usually between 2 and 4 months old.
The animal shelter also says they are in need of donations.
Cash donations, kitten food and paper towels are always needed this time of year.
