Neonatal Kitten Program

One of the most endangered groups in shelters are orphaned neonatal kittens. Every year, thousands of these tiny babies are brought to shelters by good Samaritans but due to shelter policies they cannot be adopted out and most are immediately euthanized. Thanks to the special relationship we have with our local shelters, we are able to save hundreds of these little ones a year.

Our dedicated volunteers and fosters provide these youngsters the round-the-clock support they need to thrive until they can be weaned and adopted into new, loving homes. It's an intense regimen but as our rescuers know, also incredibly rewarding. To help these tiny neonates grow into strong and spunky, well socialized, and healthy cats is the greatest reward.

Foster families provide a safe, caring, temporary home for kittens, puppies, dogs, and cats. Some animals may only need a home for several days or weeks, while others may need several months of care. Your care will ensure these animals are healthy, happy, and prepared to find their forever homes. The PAW Mission is always looking for foster families to help save more animal lives.

Things to consider:

What kind of foster animal(s) would fit well with your family’s lifestyle? Very young puppies and kittens require bottle feeding every 3-4 hours and need socialization to become happy, friendly pets, but are incredibly rewarding to foster! Nursing moms with litters are another option, providing a safe place for momma and socialization for babes. Perhaps fostering an older pet is something you’ve thought about. Adults, seniors, and those with special medical needs are always looking for a special person to open their home and heart on their road to adoption.
