Drive to Save Kittens

by austinpetsalive • Posted in: Events, Foster, Fundraising

So far, we have saved every unweaned kitten from TLAC this spring.  But we’re now almost halfway through kitten season and have run out of funds for kitten replacement milk (KMR) and foster homes.

The kittens need the community’s help. Between now and June 19th, we’re having a drive to raise the necessary resources to continue saving the kittens.

There are 3 ways that YOU can help us continue saving the kittens from euthanasia:

  1. Donate KMR or cash to allow us to purchase KMR.  We spend $18 on KMR for each kitten and we estimate that we will save 1,200 kittens this year – that’s almost $22,000!  KMR can be purchased at PETCO or Tomlinsons.
  2. Sign up to foster.  We’re looking for 100 new foster homes.  You can sign up online or come to our building Saturday, June 18th from 11-2 or Sunday, June 19th from 9-5 to meet with our foster coordinators and get signed up.  If you’re interested in taking bottle baby fosters, we’re also have training sessions this weekend, just send an email to email hidden; JavaScript is required to get signed up:
    • Sat, June 18th, 2-4pm
    • Sun, June 19th 9-10:30am
    • Sun, June 19th, 5-7pm
  3. Tell everyone you know about our adoption event this weekend.  We’re having 2-for-1 prices with the hopes that people will adopt 2 kittens so that they’ll have playmates.
