Nevada Humane Society, 2825 Longley Lane in Reno, is hosting its annual kitten shower, an education event about orphaned kittens in shelters, from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday.
The event offers items for kittens and information about foster caregivers, volunteers who offer temporary homes to underage kittens and puppies. A foster care information session about how to bottle feed neonatal kittens and socialize older kittens to prepare them for adoption will be from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
Items to provide to kittens, such as kitten formula, pet heating pads or microwavable heat discs, nursing kits and bottles and dry and canned kitten food, are being collected.
Donations are tax-deductible and will help care for the hundreds of kittens that are expected to arrive at the shelter this season. Other gift requests are available online at http://tinyurl.com/l98wzbp.
