Get pictures & bios at 5 weeks old & get quicker adoptions

Let's all try and get our little ones on PetFinder earlier this year. At about 5 weeks we need to get pictures and bios up so that by 8-10 weeks they can have their forever home already waiting for them. If you can make good pictures we can certainly use those, if not we'll have to call on Martha Davis Wilson to help out. Sorry Martha !! We do love you!!!...
Also please make sure to keep track of when your babies need to come to vet night for the first time and get tested and have their first shot/heska. Getting things done in a timely manner will hopefully get our kittens adopted faster and make way for even more little lives that can be saved! Thank you all for being such wonderful fosters and AARF volunteers!
