Saturday, June 22ndfrom from 1 to 3p.m the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA invites you to learn about the sweet rewards of saving a life at our Kittens & Cupcakes Foster Open House. Families are invited to come decorate cupcakes while learning about the SPCA’s life-saving foster program. Prizes will be awarded for the cupcake decorated most like a cat, kitten bottle-feeding demonstrations will be given, and experienced foster parents and staff will be available to answer questions about fostering. The majority of animals in the SPCA foster care program are babies too young to be placed for adoption. These kittens and puppies simply need a safe, nurturing environment where they can play and grow.
Summer is the breeding season for cats, which leads to unwanted kitten births. Historically, the SPCA takes in more than 1,000 homeless kittens each year, most of which arrive during the summer months. “With our limited resources, it would be impossible for the SPCA to care for all of these kittens without the hundreds of families that volunteer to foster each year. Every foster home is truly saving a life and making our No Kill Community possible,” says SPCA Director of Marketing and Development Lisa Lane. The SPCA provides the medical care, including all vaccinations, and assists new foster homes with whatever they may need. Lane says, “Most of our foster parents absolutely adore sharing their homes with playful kittens or puppies. Many families have also found their participation in the foster program to be a rewarding and wonderful learning experience for their children.”
This event is free, but attendees are encouraged to bring a gift for the kittens from the “kitten wish list” found on the SPCA’s website.
