Review for Kitten Rescue, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I came to Kitten Rescue for selfish reasons. I was going through a difficult time in my life, and needed to heal myself by helping someone else. The fact that I could be of service just by showering these beautiful animals with love was about as perfect a volunteer opportunity as I could have hoped for. On my first day, I met a kitten named Adam who had just arrived. He'd been born with a malformation that led to him... well... constantly dribbling poop. He was in constant pain, and barely grew as he couldn't properly absorb food, but he was as playful and loving as any kitten I've ever met. We bonded instantly. Kitten Rescue tried everything - acupuncture, surgery, finally diapers. He didn't last long, but because of this amazing organization, his short life was filled with love and care and unconditional acceptance. Kitten Rescue does great work in fostering and adoption, but I love them most for giving 'unadoptable' cats like Adam a safe, happy place to live out their lives.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create more mentorship for volunteers. I sometimes hold back from doing more because I don't know how to help, and everyone seems too busy to do basic training.
