Central Delaware animal shelter will not accept cats for two weeks

The Kent County SPCA says it’s unable to take in more cats until later this month. 

Operators of the shelter say the two-week suspension is needed to care for the cats already being held at the facility in Camden.  There has already been an outbreak of Feline Distemper among the shelter cat population.  The Kent County SPCA relies exclusively on private donations to care for its cats.  The agency says it will resume accepting cats October 25th.  Residents needing to surrender their pets or assist a stray cat are encouraged to seek other available resources for this time period.  The SPCA also accepts donations of blankets, towels, canned cat food, cat toys or beds, in addition to financial contributions.  For more information please call 302-698-3006.
