SHOUT OUT: The Bergen County Animal Shelter & Adoption Center is offering a unique deal tomorrow afternoon: Shelter a newborn kitten and then return the cat once he or she is weaned.
“After a few weeks, I bet most of them will inquire about providing a forever home to at least one kitten,” said Deborah Yankow, the Adoption Center manager. “That is always our goal.”
The special event “So You Want to Foster Kittens?” runs only from 2 to 3:30 p.m. tomorrow at the shelter, 100 United Lane, Teterboro.
The kittens are all without nursing mothers, Yankow said.
“Sometimes they’ve been abandoned, or the mother is injured or ill and can’t care for them,” she said. “These bottle babies need time and attention that is hard to provide in the shelter environment.”
