What We Do
The Foster Kitten Project (FKP) specializes in neonatal kittens, which are defined as newborns up until four weeks of age and rely on others, generally their mother, for 100% protection, warmth, and nutrition. Many shelters are unable to take on this group of kittens due to their intensive round the clock care, and as a result, they are one of the largest groups euthanized in the United States. Because of their fragile state, neonates also have a high mortality rate. Still, FKP tries to give them their best chance at life by bottle feeding, keeping them warm, providing medical care, and matching them with their purr-fect furever family when they have matured and are healthy enough.
Interesting Info
  • FKP rescued over 200 neonatal kittens in 2021. We give each kitten their best chance at life, resulting in a better than the national average (50%) survival rat
  • Our short-term goals include gaining new volunteers to fill our many positions like Application Processor, Content Writer, Fosters, and Sales.
  • Our long-term goal is to have a facility so that we may save more kittens one bottle at a time.
