ACC is also asking for the public's help to keep cats and kittens out of the shelter during the summer months.
Here are three things you should know:
1.If you find a litter of kittens that appear to be healthy and are in safe location like a yard or under a tree, leave them alone and monitor them. Mother cats will often leave their babies for short periods of time and then return.
2. If you find a cat that is sick or injured, call 311 to report it or bring it into the Animal Care Center closest to you. Click here for a list of locations.
3. The shelter is in immediate need of kitten fosters. If you would like to foster, sign up here: or email firstname.lastname@example.org and help save a kitten or an entire litter.
