Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is seeing influx of neonatal kittens - What to do if you find a kitten

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (September 15, 2021) – Animal welfare organizations throughout
Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach announced in April the tri-county launch of the second annual Don’t Kit-Nap the Kittens public awareness campaign. Every year shelters across the country brace themselves for “kitten season” in the spring and summer months.  South Florida animal shelters partnered again to share one unified message, making a plea to the community and warning well intentioned good Samaritans, that picking up found litters of kittens may be hurting them more than helping them. In most cases, newborn litters of kittens do not need human intervention and, in fact, taking the kittens is inadvertently creating orphaned kittens.  The best thing is to keep the mother and kittens together to ensure the kittens’ best chances of survival, until the kittens are eating on their own and can be safely removed to be socialized and find their forever family.  Click here to read more.
