This month is all about kittens at Alley Cat Rescue! Kitten season has arrived and Alley Cat Rescue is hearing from many passionate supporters asking how they can help. There are many ways you can get involved to help kittens, whether it is hands-on or through the comfort of your home.
Alley Cat Rescue has been hard at work for kitten season and has launched a campaign as part of the Saving Pets Challenge to raise funds to help cats in Los Angeles. We are beginning week 2 of our challenge and are already almost 30% to our $5,000 goal. We would love to win this week’s challenge where $5,000 goes to the group that raised the most donations from 5/8-5/15. You can get involved helping cats by joining our team as a fundraiser or by donating directly to the campaign. Check it all out here!
You can also get involved by signing our petition to end the harmful and unnecessary experiments the USDA is conducting on kittens. The USDA is killing up to 100 kittens a year during research on Toxoplasma gondii. The kittens are purposefully exposed to the parasite and killed at the end of the experiment. These tests are simply barbaric and cruel. Further, more humane, non-animal models exist for studying toxoplasma gondii. Sign our petition here and share with friends and family to spread the word.
If you are more of a hands-on person, now is a great time to get out in the field and trap-neuter-return cats. During kitten season, local shelters see an influx of kittens brought to them. Unfortunately, these shelters do not always have the resources to care for kittens and may euthanize many healthy kittens. TNR stops the breeding cycle and prevents kittens from being born to an unknown fate on the street. Watch our how-to video to begin TNRing cats yourself:
Thank you for all you do for kittens! Together we can make a huge difference in the lives of many animals.
Alley Cat Rescue is leading in the way in promoting humane and compassionate care for ALL cats.
