(Above) Amber Williford, 15, (left) pleads with her mother Gana Royse of Lumberton (right) to get this particular kitten while Brooke Royse, 7, (center) continues looking at other kittens at the Humane Society of Southeast Texas animal shelter in Beaumont on Tuesday, August 2, 2005. The family plans to adopt two kittens.
(Right) Kittens wait for good homes at the shelter. The shelter has about 150 cats, including about 50 kittens ready to be adopted. The shelter is also in need of donations to repair the roof as well as a constant need of supplies and volunteers.
I know, easy target. We needed a quick feature, and I always want animals to find good homes. Maybe some moms will pick up a kitten or puppy after they drop off their tots for the first day of school.
