Help during “Kitten Season”

Kitten Season is in full swing! 

Friends of the Animal Shelter has created the Purrs & Paws Virtual Kitten Shower to help raise funds and supplies to support the needs of the hundreds of vulnerable orphaned foster kittens that will be cared for over the next several months.  

As you can imagine, being able to provide supplies to 50+  foster families ensures that kittens get what they need, while not stressing the foster families’ budget.

So, just like a baby shower, we have a wish list of supplies we need for our Purrs & Paws Orphaned Kittens Shower.

Please visit the Kitten Shower event page for a full list of items needed. 

Kitten Food Needed

Wow! We have 80+ kittens in foster care, and those little darlings sure can eat!

The Shelter and the Friends of the Animal Shelter foster families could sure use some KITTEN CANNED food.

If you’d like to purchase some, you can drop it off at the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy 99, Phoenix, OR 97535 any time! There is a big green donation bin at the back of the Shelter.

If you’d like to have some shipped to us, you can have it delivered to the Shelter.

And if you’d like to make a donation so that we can buy it, just go to and we’ll go shopping for you!
