It may seem like the SPCA of Hancock County has been overrun with kittens lately.  Well, it's because they have been.

The shelter recently posted that they had 70 kittens ready to be adopted.  Some, thankfully, went to new homes this past Saturday when the folks from the shelter held a kitten event at Stanley Subaru. But some still remain anxiously awaiting a new forever home.

These two little guys are a couple of them.

Joe and Tortilla are about 7 and-a-half months old, and the bouncy little duo has bonded together early on in life and we'd like to see them both go to the same forever home.  These sweet pair of kittens are domestic short-haired beauties who are a little on the small side, both weighing in at between 2 and-a-half and 3 pounds.

Like most young cats, Joe and Tortilla are a little timid at first but with a little time to get to know you, they will crawl up into your lap and enjoy being part of your pride and joy.

Why don't you take a closer look at them and then make them a part of your family?  We think that's a good idea.

Now if Joe and Tortilla aren't a good fit, then why not Precious and Frodo?  These two have been at the SPCA of Hancock County since this past April, and even though the volunteers there are wonderful they'd just as soon be moving along to a permanent forever home!

The SPCA of Hancock County serves EllsworthMount Desert Island and beyond, and is still operating by appointment only for the safety of the animals, as well as visitors and staff. If you are looking to adopt, please check their website where they have an adoption application and the available animals listed. For general inquiries, please call them at 207-667-8088, email, or send them a Facebook message. The shelter is located on Route 3 in Trenton.
