The kittens are coming! For the Humane Society of El Paso, “Kitten Season” has already begun, and that means hundreds of homeless kittens will soon be entering our shelter, counting on us to save their lives.
Join us for a Virtual Kitten Shower celebration from April 5th to April 11th as we welcome the new bundles of joy on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with video demonstrations, Foster Q&A, and baby shower games!
Come back tomorrow for the next Virtual Kitten Shower activity!
Can't wait until then? In the meantime, visit our cat and kitten resources below and make a donation to submit a name suggestion for the incoming litters.
An unaltered cat can become pregnant as early as 4 months of age. The most humane solution to population control is to spay and neuter all your cats. Sterilization stabilizes the population of community cat colonies and over time reduces them. HSEP offers help through the Mary Speer Cat Spay and Neuter Program.
Through Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered and rabies vaccinated. A small portion of the tip of the right ear is surgically removed (while the cat is anesthetized) to indicate that the cats are part of a TNR program.
After recovering from surgery, the cats are returned to their outdoor homes, ending the cycle of producing new litters of kittens.

Before we can intake kitten litters, we must ensure that they have a foster home to go to! Sign up to be a kitten foster today to save lives and help keep space available at the shelter.
