Tips for anyone 

Short on fosters? Rotate them! Let your bottle baby pros focus on those, then pass them over to new or less experienced fosters once they are weaned.   

Want to start a finder-foster program? Stock your intake area with kitten care kits, so you can send finders home with all the supplies to get started.   

  • Use this great infographic to help your community know what to do when they find sick or healthy kittens outside.  

Having a kitten shower to bring in supplies? Use the event to recruit fosters, talk with current fosters about challenges and wins.
