With kitten season coming, a shelter seeks supplies

Mar 16, 2020

ROCHESTER — During these uncertain times, shelter animals still need to be looked after and fed. It’s All About the Animals shelter will be closed to visitors for the foreseeable future due to the coronavirus, but will still need supplies and support from the community as it works to help cats and kittens. 

As the weather starts getting warmer, cats who have not been spayed or neutered will start having kittens, often outside. That's where shelters come in. It's All About the Animals, Inc., is a cage free, no kill 501c3 nonprofit cat shelter which relies on volunteers and donations to help feed and look after kittens, their moms, and its resident cats.

At the shelter, cats have space to run, play, and explore safe enclosed outdoor areas. Felines have been spayed/neutered and receive all vaccines for distemper and rabies before adoption. Each cat is given a microchip and registered with a professionally managed database. 

Donors can to go to http://www.itsallabouttheanimals.org or to https://www.facebook.com/Itsallabouttheanimalsinc to make a Paypal or credit card donation. Donations are crucial to help with veterinary bills, medical and cleaning supplies, and overall care.

Cat and kitten food is also appreciated, and interested donors can find out what the shelter needs, by visiting its AmazonSmile program, also accessible through the organization’s web site. THe website will also provide updates on critical decisions in the next few weeks. 

Checks can be mailed to 103 Marion Road, Rochester MA 02770, or the shelter can be reached at ohnokitty1@gmail.com.
