More than 100 kittens have been surrendered at the Marion-Grant County Humane Society in the past two months.

Since the snow began to melt in late March, the influx of strays, surrendered pets and litters of kittens have been overwhelming staff at the humane society, decimating their supplies, resources and employees, shelter manager Angie Martz says.
