save the life of a kitten today.

In 2016, more than 2,600 newborn kittens (two months of age or younger) were killed in Los Angeles city shelters, simply because they didn't have safe places to call home. Together, we can change that. Here's how to help:


Save the Kittens Walk-in Foster Weekend, August 26-27

Become a kitten foster and save lives! Visit Los Angeles Animal Services, Stray Cat Alliance and Best Friends in L.A. on August 26 or 27 to learn how to foster kittens (details per location are below). You’ll receive an on-the-spot orientation and all the necessary supplies to successfully foster a kitten or litter of kittens. Fostering is a fun, temporary commitment that makes a huge lifesaving impact at our city shelters. This is a great way to be a big hero to a tiny soul. Foster kittens and help make L.A. a no-kill city!
