Name that kitten!

Help us name these three kittens who just came into the shelter & help fund them getting vetted & into their forever homes!  For just a $5.00 donation you can pick any name you’d like for a kitten, then watch her progress with us as she goes from intake to adopted.  A thoughtful tribute to a lost companion, inexpensive “in honor of” gift, or just plain fun.  Upon request, donor’s name or the “in honor of” will be listed in conjunction with your kitten’s name throughout our website.  We reserve the right to refuse any offensive name and refund that donation.  When you make your donation, make sure to tell us the name you’ve chosen! Now let’s name these kittens!
