LA Animal Services URGENTLY needs kitten fosters! START HERE

There are 30-40 underage kittens coming into the city shelter facilities EVERYDAY that are in need of a foster home.

 

By opening your home to foster, you help ensure the survival of a five-to-six-week-old kitten who still needs critical care. The foster period typically lasts a short two to three weeks, and then the kittens are returned to the pet adoption center where they find a loving, permanent home. By fostering a kitten, you are truly helping to save a life.
