Kitten Foster Program
The VBAS Kitten Foster Program was established in 2001 in response to the overwhelming kitten population in the Burbank area. Throughout the year, the shelter receives hundreds of kittens less than eight weeks old. Whether they come in as a single stray or an entire litter, these tiny felines are too young and require too much care to survive in a shelter environment. Foster volunteers house these young kittens and provide essential care – feeding, socialization with humans and other animals and medical care. Once the foster kitten reaches two pounds in weight he or she is available for adoption, and the foster family will interview potential adopters at home or at an adoption fair. Kitten adoption fairs are held twice each month at the shelter to assist with the adoption process.
