The Kitten Lady is headed to Tennessee to teach people the proper techniques to care for newborn kittens, and the seminar will also raise funds for the Washington County/Johnson City Animal Shelter.

The event, which will feature Kitten Lady, Hannah Shaw, is geared toward people who want to know how to care for newborn kittens, Tammy Davis, director of the shelter, said. It’s also one of the major fundraising events for the facility.

“We’re really excited to have her coming here,” Davis said. “She’s an award-winning humane educator, kitten rescuer and unwavering animal advocate who has dedicated her life to finding innovative ways to protect animals.”

Shaw is known throughout the animal rescue field for her work. She provides educational media, training resources and instructional workshops to teach people how to care for such young kittens, which require round-the-clock feedings.

Tickets for the event are still available, although VIP and meet-and-greet tickets are all gone, Davis said.

The event is scheduled for Sept. 21 at Northeast State Community College. There are two sessions: 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. is the Saving Kittens Lives seminar and 1:30-3:30 p.m. is the Community Cats 101 seminar.

Each workshop is $22.85, both cost $34.36 and premier seating for both workshops is $45.37.
