Kitten Lady Hannah Shaw Coming to Pasadena Humane

Pasadena Humane is preparing for its annual influx of kittens by hosting a “Kitten Shower” with award-winning kitten rescuer, humane educator and New York Times bestselling author Hannah Shaw, known as the “Kitten Lady.”
The event will be held March 24 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with two workshops: “Intro to Fostering” and “Kitten Care.”
Guests are encouraged to donate items from the Kitten Shower wish list that will help in the shelter’s lifesaving efforts. Other activities include a kitten-naming station, a raffle and sign-ups for those interested in becoming kitten foster families.
The Kitten Shower will help provide food and supplies for the hundreds of orphaned kittens that the shelter expects to take in this year.
Pasadena Humane foster families raise the kittens until they are old enough to be spayed or neutered, then adopted. In 2023, more than 1,600 kittens trickled through the foster program.
“Throughout the spring and summer, we will go through hundreds of pounds of food,” said Nadia Cubias, foster manager at Pasadena Humane. “These donations immensely help to save as many lives as possible.”
Pasadena Humane also hopes to sign up new foster families open to caring for kittens. With “kitten season” right around the corner, the timing is perfect for kitten lovers to learn how they can help. People interested in fostering can find out more at pasadenahumane.org/foster.
The event is open to all, and general admission tickets can be purchased in advance for $35. VIP-level tickets are also available and include a meet-and-greet with the Kitten Lady. Tickets are available at pasadenahumane.org/kittenshower2024.
Since 1903, Pasadena Humane has offered lifesaving programs and services for animals and the people who love them in the Greater Los Angeles Area. The organization provides shelter, dedicated care and new beginnings for thousands of our community’s most vulnerable animals every year. In addition to pet adoptions and foster, we focus on programs and services aimed at helping people care for and keep their pets, such as free and low-cost spay/neuter and vaccines, a pet food pantry, and an animal support call center. In 2022, Pasadena Humane helped nearly 40,000 animals through adoptions, wildlife rehabilitation, lost & found, veterinary services and surrender prevention assistance.
