Review for Kitten Rescue, Los Angeles, CA, USA
I discovered Kitten Rescue in March 2014 when I was searching for live animal streams to watch. I live in the UK but I very quickly switched to the L.A. time zone because I was hooked!
Watching kittens and their mums is hugely enjoyable but seeing the tlc given by the desicated staff and volunteers was so heartwarming.
And when I found out they also care for many, many older cats in their Sanctuary building I started to sponser a lovely tomcat who goes by the name of Gobbles.
A lot of the cars here have incurable health problems so sponsering and donations go a huge way in helping KR save and care for even more cats.
This year KR launched the Nursery and it is manned 24/7 as baby kittens are bottle fed every few hours. Many are rescued from the City Shelters where their future is bleak due to the overwhelming numbers of cats taken there.
Some baby kittwns are alone, some have their mum with them.
The Nursery also cares for three sisters who have Cerebellar Hypoplasia (which is a condition roughly equivalent to cerebral palsy)
We have watched them get stronger and stronger because they had important physical therapy. What ever the cats need at KR, they get no matter the costs.
Kitten Rescue have an equally dedicated team of fosters who play such an important role.
I have been so impressed with KR.
Their interaction program with humans is great and we see many people who give up some time to play with the kittens or sit quietly if the kittens are asleep.
Ive seen over 100 cats arrive and then be successfully adopted and I have to say, I have not seen a single kitty with a grumpy purrsonality.
I send donations and gifts to KR because every bit helps towards the upkeep of this richly rewarding organisation.
If I lived in L.A. I would certainly want to spend time there myself volunteering.
They have saved hundreds of cats and with our help we can be a part of the KR experience knowing hundreds more cats will be saved in the future.
