DSPCA issue urgent appeal for people to foster kittens

By Aura McMenamin

The Dublin Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (DSPCA) has issued an urgent appeal for people to foster kittens.

The animal welfare charity said they are ‘completely overrun’ with kittens and have taken in over 30 young cats this week alone.

The DSPCA and other animal shelters are flooded with unwanted litters during kitten season.

‘Kitten season’, which takes place in Spring/Summer, is the primary time of year when cats give birth.

If you’re interested in taking in a kitten, the Rathfarnham-based charity can be contacted at foster@dspca.ie and will provide everything needed during the fostering period.

To prevent an unwanted litter, the Dublin SPCA advises pet owners to spay and neuter their pets.
