  • Tuesday morning 40 kittens hopped on a private plane bound for New York to meet their forever families.

    The Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League says Palm Beach County shelters have reached max capacity for feral cats. This comes at the peak of kitten season where stray litters are born daily.

    So to alleviate the over-abundance of the little creatures, the organization partnered with the North Shore Animal League in Long Island, New York. Thats where Peggy Adams AML CEO, Rich Anderson, says there is a shortage of kittens.

    The kittens, each three to five months old, should arrive at the shelter sometime Tuesday evening, where they will rest before meeting their new families.

    The organization hopes to partner with even more private donors to complete similar missions to reduce the number of homeless animals.
