Where did the kittens come from?
Most of the bottle-fed kittens and pregnant or nursing mama cats we take in are from the local area and surrounding shelters/rescue groups. Many of the kittens currently in our care were transferred in through the MSPCA in Jamaica Plain, Boston. But, if you visited our shelter on a different week, you might meet older kittens transported in from southern US rescue groups. These kittens are usually rescued from certain euthanasia in high-kill shelters in the south. Bottom line, when we have space in our shelter, we're filling it up as fast as we can with animals in need.
For us, taking in orphaned kittens or caring for pregnant or nursing mama cats, is like second-nature. Whether providing nourishment, loving patience, or even encouragement while 'potty training' -- it's part of our mission to care for animals in need and help them find their forever homes. Your support makes it possible. Thank you!
