Last Year, nearly 3,000 neonate kittens were euthanized in Kern County and Bakersfield City Municipal Shelters. Besides needing supplies and volunteers to sustain our Kitten Unit Operations, the most needed element is sponsorship. The kittens need Sponsors to support them in finding their Foreverhomes through assistance in the costs of Spay/Neuters, Vaccines, Food & Medicine, and Veterinary Care. We can have all the equipment and volunteers in the world to save abandoned kittens, but it means nothing without Sponsors like You. If you’d like to become a life saving Sponsor, please complete and submit our Sponsor Donation form below.
How much does that kitten cost?
Each Orphaned Kitten that comes into our nursery undergoes an extensive amount of care which includes FOUR sets of FVRCP Vaccines, Rabies Vaccines, Flea/Tick/Ear Mite Treatment, Probiotics, Full Spectrum Dewormers, Day-to-day Veterinary Care & Medications, Royal Canin/Science Diet Kitten Food and Spay/Neuter. Each kitten also gets our Whisker to Tail Warranty when they get adopted to ensure they are happy and healthy when they arrive at their new Foreverhome.
