When we find a litter of kittens, our good-hearted instincts tell us to rush to the aid of these fragile felines. However, the best thing you can do is leave the kittens alone. Mom will likely return shortly, and it’s critical that the kittens remain in her care as she offers the best chance for survival
If you are extremely certain that the kittens are orphaned, you can then step in and help by caring for the kittens until they’re old enough to find homes.
AHS has launched a new care-in-place 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 training to ensure these little felines get off to a healthy start, and help you find them forever homes when they’re ready.
