Shelters must consider carefully the resources they have available and the risk to healthy cats when undertaking treatment. A cat who needs only minimal treatment to recover from an upper respiratory infection may pass it on to another cat who requires intensive care therapy. Once the shelter has run out of space to isolate sick animals or place them in foster care, it may be necessary to consider euthanasia to protect the lives of the rest of the animals.

Unless the kittens are in immediate danger (i.e. in a busy roadway), do not touch or move them. The mother cat is most likely nearby and has left the kittens to hunt or eat. It is common for mother cats to leave for a short time, usually to return within a couple of hours. Well-meaning citizens often bring litters of infant kittens to the Shelter. While Shelter staff members and volunteers are trained to care for tiny kittens, they are no substitute for the mother.

When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.We are a non-profit animal rescue organization saving the lives of thousands of homeless and abandoned pets each year. We rescue dogs and cats facing euthanasia in overcrowded shelters, and place them for adoption in loving homes. ALL of our animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.The Cat’s Meow is a 100% volunteer-run, registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue organization devoted to helping cats in the greater Los Angeles area. We rescue cats from high-kill city shelters and off the streets and provide them with medical care and love until we find their forever homes. We also interface with local communities about the importance of spay and neuter to help reduce overpopulation and the high kill rates in local shelters.Are there stray cats in your neighborhood, and you could use some help? We’re here for you! Brother Wolf Animal Rescue’s Community Cats Program helps local citizens vaccinate and “fix” outdoor cats so that they can no longer reproduce. Volunteers then maintain care and feeding so that the cats can live out their lives in their outdoor home and not end up in the local shelter system.
