The Peoria Humane Society has a unique fundraiser. Kitten Yoga!
“We have a waiting list and there’s talk of doing it again,” said Kitty Yanko, education coordinator at Peoria County Animal Protection Services. “It’s a fundraiser, so if there’s that much interest, we will certainly do it again.” Classes are being held in the Humane Society building next door to the PCAPS facility.
Kitten yoga is one of several new initiatives PCAPS and PHS are implementing this year in their ongoing efforts to find homes for the many cats that end up in the shelter. Summer is particularly bad — it’s likely the shelter will soon be inundated with kittens.
