Look at these faces...one-week old orphan kittens, unable to survive
on their own and surrendered to an animal shelter.
Two kittens were
killed in the shelter before a humane organization was contacted and a
volunteer offered to care for the other six babies. Six kittens are
fortunate to have foster parents who will tend to them day and night
until they are strong enough to care for themselves.
Did the person who surrendered the kittens realize they would likely be
killed? Perhaps he or she thought a "shelter" could care for them?
The reality is shelters often don't have the time,
staff, or volunteers to care for orphan kittens. They may not have the
space to care for cats that are deemed unadoptable because they are
older, not social, and/or not a preferred color. The shelters may be too
crowded and killing cats is considered a solution to the problem.
PLEASE save a life--spay or neuter your cat.
