Kitten Season is upon us! Do you know what to do if you find kittens?
Sometimes doing what you think might be right may in fact not be right at all. Please use this graphic as a guide for making the best decision when you find kittens out in the wild.
We all want to feel like we are helping. In some cases, doing nothing can be the best decision.
Keep a watchful eye over the kittens and know when it's time to take action or call for help.
These same guidelines can be used for puppies as well.
