Ask the Vet - Adopting Kittens
Where should I go to adopt a new kitten?
I advocate adopting a kitten from your local shelter. Not only are you helping save a life, but you will also save yourself a lot of money. That’s because most shelters provide kittens with their first set of vaccinations, and many have an arrangement with local veterinarians to have the kittens spayed or neutered at a discounted professional fee. Additionally, if you have a problem, most shelters want to know about it and will do their best to make things right—for both you and your new pet.
