The Neonatal Kitten Nursery Program is a unique and creative approach to saving an entire class of especially fragile, homeless animals. The program targets orphaned, unweaned kittens that were fated for euthanasia at many Central Texas shelters.Each year, especially during the breeding season (which spans from March to October), shelters are overwhelmed with orphaned kittens. Prior to APA!’s introduction of the Bottle Baby Nursery Program, nearly all of these kittens were euthanized because neither the shelters nor local rescue groups in the community could provide the intensive care that these special little ones need to survive. By feeding, treating and providing shelter to kittens that would have otherwise been euthanized, this nursery fills the gap in the shelter community that is necessary to save the lives of thousands of kittens each year.
