giving theSE little ones their best chance at life

The most vulnerable animal in the public shelter system is a kitten under 2lbs. These kittens, especially those not yet eating on their own, are typically euthanized on intake at most public shelters.

In an effort to change the fate of too many kittens, two non-profit rescue organizations, The Little Lion Foundation and Helen Sanders CatPAWS, have launched this joint effort to create and operate a kitten nursery. This nursery will give kittens too young to be adopted or those who need medical care a safe place to heal and grow.
