San Jose kittens need our help!
In the Bay Area, April through October is kitten season. During these months, hundreds of kittens are born and end up at our area shelters. These tiny creatures are the population most likely to be euthanized at shelters because they are too young and require resources that most shelters don't have. The way to save the lives of these kittens is to place them in homes temporarily where they can grow old enough to be adopted. San Jose Animal Advocates is launching a campaign in the community to recruit temporary homes for at-risk kittens.
What does it take to become a kitten foster parent?
- Provide daily care, feeding and any necessary medications as prescribed by rescue group's veterinarian.
- Socialize cats/kittens and give them plenty of TLC.
- Provide transportation to and from the vet office for medical appointments.
- Be Committed: These cats/kittens will be in your care until they are adopted. You could have your foster(s) for a few weeks or several months.
