Kitten Season: Where to Adopt a Kitten in the Ann Arbor Area

The spring and summer months are the perfect time of year for cat naps. This makes it a great time to adopt a kitten to cuddle with! Most cats have their kittens between March and October, leaving shelters overwhelmed with kittens during these months.

Adopting a cat from a rescue or shelter not only provides a loving home for your new furry friend, but also opens up a spot at the shelter for new animals. Kittens are often recommended to go home in pairs, because they love to play with each other. Adopt a new furry companion, or two, at one of these shelters in the Ann Arbor area. 

Humane Society of Huron Valley

The Humane Society of Huron Valley has paired over 1,200 animals with a forever family this year already. They welcome walk-ins, but recommend having at least an hour to spend during their adoption process.

The Humane Society of Huron Valley works with Tiny Lions. At Tiny Lions you can spend even more time getting to know a kitten before taking them home. They offer ‘Coloring with Kittens’, ‘Yoga with Cats’, ‘Cats and Kids’ and many other events that allow you to spend time with the kittens. They also welcome people who simply want to enjoy time with the cats without the commitment of adopting a pet! 

When you adopt a cat from the Humane Society of Huron Valley the adoption fee covers a multitude of behavior and health check ups and support. Some of these things include such as their spay neuter surgery and microchip ID.
