Each year as the weather warms up, kitten season begins. Stray and feral cats living in the wild begin having kittens, and hundreds of these kittens are turned in at the Burbank Animal Shelter. The Shelter does not have the space to house and care for them all, and this is where the Kitten Foster Program (KFP) comes in. KFP saves over 250 tiny kittens each year (316 in 2020!) by providing care in temporary foster homes until they can be adopted.
Some kittens we receive are only a few days old and require bottle feeding. Others are weaned and just need a safe home to live in until they reach adoption weight. We need your help to save all of them.
We are recruiting new foster volunteers for the 2021 season. Prior experience is not necessary, just a love of kittens! We will teach you the rest.
And if a couple of foster kittens playing and scampering about sounds like fun, we’ll let you in on a secret…it is! It’s a *lot* of fun. Seeing your kittens taking their first steps, exploring and discovering the world around them, and watching their personalities develop is incredibly rewarding.
We hope you can join our foster team and make a lifesaving difference for these tiny animals. KFP will provide training, medical care, and all supplies.
We are especially in need of fosters who can bottle feed!
