HELPING ORPHANED KITTENS
During the spring and summer months, and again in the fall, kittens arrive at Jackson County Animal Shelter in droves, often motherless and requiring round-the-clock care. “Kitten Season” poses a need for both foster volunteers to care for these babies, and supplies to ensure their survival.
We currently have more than 80 kittens in foster care, and more than 80 have “graduated” so far this year into adoption after they have been spayed/neutered!
There is NO question that fostering saves lives!
We’re calling this a “virtual” kitten shower because so many of us are sheltering at home – so, we hope you will contribute to our Kitten Shower from home!
We need to buy medical supplies to get the kittens healthy (most come in with some sort of treatable illness), and keep them healthy (with special kitten milk replacement formula and kitten food). Other stuff, like beds, play pens, warming disks, bottles, litter, etc. are all on the shopping list! And, then of course, get them spayed/neutered.
Currently, we spend close to $25,000/year to supply and manage our Foster program for both cats and dogs (does NOT include the cost of spay/neuter).
As of November 1st, we have raised $15,000. We’re hoping to meet our goal before the end of the year!
Please consider making a financial contribution to help us pay for essential Orphaned Kittens supplies!
