SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The nation's first kitten nursery, established in San Diego, is celebrating its tenth season running.

San Diego Humane Society's kitten nursery has cared for more than 10,000 underage, orphaned, and otherwise kittens in need around-the-clock for the last decade, according to the Society.

Currently, the nursery has more than 100 orphaned kittens.

"We are in kitten season," Jackie Noble, with the Humane Society, said. "We usually get two big peaks ... usually goes with the weather. As the weather gets warmer, more kittens are born and that's when we see the majority of our kittens come through the doors."

And as Mother's Day nears, prospective owners are searching for lovable kittens to call their own.

"Yes everyone wants a kitten. We're getting a lot of people asking if they can adopt these babies." Noble added.

Anyone interested in adopting a kitten should visit the San Diego Humane Society's website for more information or to check on which pets are available.
