The Best Friends Animal Society of Salt Lake City is looking for foster homes for kittens
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) — Kitten season, the time of year when animal shelters see an increase in kitten admissions, is upon us. Meanwhile, Sugar House’s Best Friends Animal Society says the influx of kittens needs a place to go.
In an effort to maintain comfortable accommodations at the shelter, Best Friends is urgently seeking kitten foster parents who can temporarily foster and bottle-feed the kittens overnight while the shelter works to secure foster homes at long term. Additionally, they are looking for longer term kitten foster homes to care for kittens from birth to eight weeks old.
As best friends have noted, any amount or volunteer help helps. Looking after one or two kittens is just as useful as looking after an entire litter.
To show the public how easy it is to care for young kittens, Best Friends Salt Lake City, located at 2005 S 1100 E, will be hosting live bottle-feeding demonstrations and host family recruitment registrations. reception at the Lifesaving Center every two weeks from 4 p.m. at 6 p.m. starting today.
These events will be a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about kitten breeding. In addition to representatives from Best Friends, current foster homes will be on hand to answer questions about placement of kittens of all ages.
The shelter states that these are open events and no registration is required. You can sign up to promote on the spot or complete an application later.
