Found Kittens?  Here is What you Should Do!

It's the start of Kitten Season and a shelter is no place for baby kittens!  If you find baby kittens PLEASE LEAVE THEM IN PLACE to see if their Mother is in the area--she is the best caregiver for her babies.  If Mom is not around, then please help by fostering the kittens until they are old enough to be adopted. Animal Care will supply food and medical care for the family.  Read all about Caring for Found Kittens here.
