Foster Programs

2Tiny Kitten Village

Over 5500 kittens are brought to our shelter every year.   People find them in backyards and under bushes.  Many of them are just days old and too young to survive in a shelter environment.  This year we are going to try a new concept  the 2Tiny Kitten Village. This dedicated shelter space will be a place community pet lovers like yourself can come and help us care for all these babies while they wait for rescue.  
 
Sign-up to help bottle-feed, transport, re-stock supplies or be a temporary foster home:   I Want to Help Kittens

We also need donations to buy supplies like kitten formula, bottles and heating pads:   I Want to Donate
