Pet of the Week - Kitten Season

Georgetown, SC - GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) - The spring season always means one thing at animal shelters: Kitten season.

The story is no different at the St. Frances Animal Center in Georgetown. The staff says they are already overwhelmed with the number of kittens they are taking care of.

Mandy Johnson, adoption coordinator at St. Frances, says the number of kittens is so high because people forget how quickly and easily cats can get pregnant. Johnson says that's why it's important owners take responsibility and get their cats spayed or neutered.

If you're looking to add a feline friend to your family, stop by the St. Frances Animal Center and visit the kittens they have. Every little furry feline would like to go home and start building their life with you.

For more information on the center, you can visit their website or call 843-546-0780.
