Dessin Animal Shelter, 138 Miller Dr., Honesdale, will host its first-ever kitten shower on Saturday, February 22, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. 
The shower will allow Dessin to supply necessary items to its volunteer foster network, many of whom care for kittens and cats, due to lack of space at the shelter.  Bassinets have been placed at Dessin Animal Shelter and its in-service thrift shop, the Cat’s Pajamas, 621 Main St., Honesdale.
The public is invited to enjoy punch, cake and visit with the cats and kittens in the shelter’s brand-new cat room addition.  They are asked to donate an item including:  cat toys; scoopable cat litter; soft blankets; ceramic pet bowls; corrugated scratch pads and Purina kitten chow. 
Those who sign-up to become a foster parent, with Dessin Animal Shelter, will receive a complimentary t-shirt.  Adopt-a-cage valentines are on sale for $5 each and hand-made heart ornaments, by local artist, Kryssi Lee, are available for $3 each.  All proceeds benefit Dessin Animal Shelter. 
Additionally, the shelter will be hosting its third Adopt ME-OW-T of Here event through Saturday, February 22.  Shelter patrons can choose a heart balloon to reveal adoption discounts on cats and kittens up to 20 percent.  Two balloons will contain free adoptions!
