Nebraska Humane Society seeks foster homes for kittens


ED, NOW MORE THAN EVER. SEAN: EACH DAY, MORE AND MORE KITTENS ARE BROUGHT INTO THESE KENNELS AT THE NEBRASKA HUMANE SOCIETY, WHICH MEANS THEY’RE IN NEED OF MORE FOSTER FAMILIES. PAM: WE GET INUNDATED WITH CATS. BEGINNING ABOUT THREE WEEKS AGO, WE STARTED GETTING KITTENS INTO FOSTER CARE. AND WE WILL PROBABLY GET THEM INTO THE SHELTER THROUGH AUGUST, SEPTEMBER, EVEN OCTOBER SOMETIMES. SEAN: NOW, THE NEBRASKA HUMANE SOCIETY IS LOOKING TO YOU TO HELP FIND ALL OF THESE FELINE FRIENDS FOREVER HOMES. THAT’S WHY THEY’RE MAKING A SPECIAL PUSH TO FIND ADOPTIVE FAMILIES. PAM: THE KITTENS ARE THE MOST FRAGILE. SO, HAVING THEM HERE, WHERE THERE ARE OTHER ANIMALS, WHERE THEY CAN PICK UP OTHER DISEASES, ISN’T THE HEALTHIEST FOR THEM. SEAN: LAST YEAR, 205 FAMILIES FOSTERED 1900 ANIMALS FROM THE SHELTER. MOST OF WHICH WERE KITTENS. THE HUMANE SOCIETY SAYS GETTING THEM OUT OF THE KENNELS AND INTO HOMES GIVES EACH ONE A BETTER CHANCE TO THRIVE. PAM: WE JUST NEED TIME AND TLC FROM YOU. EVERYTHING ELSE, WE SUPPLY. FROM THE KITTEN CONDOS, TO THE SCRATCHERS, TO THE FOOD, TO THE , YOU KNOW, WATER, TO THE LITER, ANY OF THAT STUFF, WE WILL SUPPLY. SEAN: THE NEBRASKA HUMANE SOCI ETY SAYS THAT THE MORE KITTENS PUT IN THE FOSTER PROGRAM FREES UP MORE SPACE FOR CATS TO BE ADOPTED. REPORTING IN OMAHA, SEAN
