The Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA is holding its annual kitten nursery shower Saturday at its shelter in Burlingame.
Guests at the fifth-annual event can watch volunteers feed tiny kittens via syringes. Staff will be on hand to talk about their work and give information about volunteer and foster care options for the animals.
Children are also invited and can participate in activities such as face painting and get balloon animals. Snacks for the event have been donated by Copenhagen Bakery & Café and Trader Joe's.
The PHS/SPCA is encouraging guests to bring gifts for the kittens, such as formula, baby wipes, paper towels and cotton balls.
The event is scheduled for noon-3 p.m. at the Tom and Annette Lantos Center for Compassion at 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame. More information is available online at www.phs-spca.org/kittenshower.
The nonprofit says its kitten nursery started in 2008 and has saved the lives of 1,739 kittens.
