ACS asking for donations, fosters during puppy, kitten season

Animal Care Services is seeking foster parents and donations amid an influx of puppies and kittens the shelter has recently received. ACS is asking for items like formula, food, blankets, towels, heating pads, miracle nipples and feeding bottles, spokesperson Lisa Norwood said. Donations can be dropped off from 1-7 p.m. Monday through Friday or from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays at the shelter, located at 4710 State Highway 151. The shelter will not accept pillows, cat stands, human clothes, empty cat litter containers and a few other items. ACS said kitten litters are often left outside the shelter in an old box or laundry basket, and the growing influx is maxing out resources.
