It also marks the beginning of puppy and kitten season in Atlanta, which actually lasts through three seasons of the year. Local county shelters are already overflowing with pregnant dogs and cats, mamas with newborn puppies and kittens, and boxes of puppies and kittens turned in by owners.

Shelton’s shelter which now boasts a 5000-square-foot facility in Doraville with capacity for 275 cats, and a separate shelter in Alpharetta devoted to dogs.
