El Paso Animal Services, in collaboration with its official nonprofit organization, Friends of El Paso Animal Services, will host a fun-filled “Kitten Shower” in preparation for the busy litter season.

The public is invited to this free festive event being held at Aurellia’s Bottle Shop & Brewhouse, 1620 Resler Dr.

“Kittens are already ‘brewing’ in our community, and we want to prepare for their arrival as best as possible, and that’s with the help of our community,” said Terry Kebschull, El Paso Animal Services Director. “Every year, El Paso Animal Services sees thousands of kittens and puppies being brought to the shelter. Our community needs more foster caregivers to help us keep these abandoned kittens and puppies alive, happy and healthy.”

Staff and other volunteer organizations will be on hand to share information about available Community Programs such as the Foster Program and Community Cat Program and they will also help family’s signup to be new foster parents.

In addition, Friends of El Paso Animal Services will be accepting much-needed donations from the Kitten Shower ‘registry’ to support lifesaving programs.

The event will feature games, arts and crafts, refreshments, educational demonstrations, and an opportunity to pet and play with foster kittens.
