It’s kitten season and our shelter is currently inundated with underage kittens. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to provide more underage kittens the care they require. Thankfully, we have a solution. We have a special foster program designed to make it convenient for good Samaritans to care for newborn kittens in their home. We will provide all the necessary tools, including care kits, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery and tips on bottle feeding. Once the kittens are 6 weeks of age we will take over care and find them loving homes.
Foster Kitten Duties Include:
Bottle feeding every 2-3 hours, day and night
Stimulating the kittens to go potty – they are too young to know to go on their own
Keeping these babies clean and dry
Giving them lots of love and attention
IMPORTANT – Don’t Kit-nap Kittens!
If you find a litter of kittens, the best thing you can do is leave the kittens alone. Mom will likely return. Please don’t intervene. It is critical the kittens remain in her care as she offers the best chance for survival. The only time you should step in is if you are 100% certain that the kittens are orphaned.
