Sunderland charity Animal Krackers says it is overwhelmed by a kitten crisis.
As usual, the summer has seen a boom in the number of kittens being born, but there has been a decline in the number of people taking them in.
As a result, Animal Krackers has more than 30 needing homes.
The kittens are currently being looked after in workers’ homes, but with their houses full, the charity is struggling to take in any more abandoned animals.
Animals Krackers rescue co-ordinator Ian Williams said: “We have a lot of lovely kittens.
“But please only come and get one if you can give it a really good home, if you can look after it and give it the care and love it’s going to need for the rest of its life.”
At any one time Animal Krackers also has around 50 adult cats needing homes.
They are currently fostered by workers but will soon move into Sunderland’s first purpose-built cat rehoming centre.
It has been funded by Animal Krackers’ charity store in Sunderland and is currently under construction.
The adult cats will move into the centre in South Hylton in September.
The kittens will also eventually move in if homes cannot be found them.
Anyone interested in adopting a cat or kitten can visit the Animal Krackers website.
