Why, in a playpen, of course!
Kitten season is-a-coming, and throwing a kitten shower is a fun way to get your community involved and recruit foster volunteers. Hopefully, once your wish list for your kitten shower is out there, attendees will be bringing lots of stuff—so take a tip from Florida’s Jacksonville Humane Society and use a playpen as an adorable way to collect gifts from guests. The playpen stuffed with kitten swag will be a hit at your event, and will make for a swoon-worthy photo to post on social media later.
JHS got their playpen from a local thrift shop, but you can also ask your supporters to donate one.
