Seventy adorable kittens were found foster homes in hours at the SPCA of Brevard County. The 70+ kittens were driven up from the Palm Beach County Animal Shelter on 17th May. They were all looking for foster homes and bingo they found them. The SPCA of Brevard County were helping out Palm Beach Animal Control because they were inundated with kittens.
The video in interesting because we see all these gorgeous kittens in large cages. It is sad but there is optimism for their early adoption.
It’s the kitten season again (April- Sept). To an outsider like myself it seems a huge burden and responsibility in taking in 70 kittens in one go.
Animal Control said they rely on rescue partners to ‘get our animals out of the door..’
The impressive efficiency of the SPCA and the network of foster carers meant that these seventy adorable kittens were found foster homes within hours, I am told by Click Orlando. When they are old enough to be adopted they will release them. This may be at 12 weeks or older. This ensures that the kittens are socialized, properly weaned (where appropriate) and their characters have been nicely formed.
It is great work saving the kittens and getting them into homes but it hard not to think that they should not have been born. They have been thrust into the human world without a home. We return to the same old discussion about responsible cat ownership.
Be a Cat Foster Mom
SPCA of Brevard Executive Director Angie Friers is always looking for suitable people willing and able to be cat foster carers. Her call to those sitting on the fence about doing it is to ‘pull the trigger’ and do it. Seventy adorable kittens were found foster homes quickly because of the availability of foster carers. This rescue would not have worked without them.
