The kittens featured here came to the shelter without moms, and are fostered until ready for adoption.
Every effort is made to find each kitten the best family based on it's unique personality and the adopters' home environment.
Sending them off in pairs is ideal. Click here to learn why.
Happy kittens and happy adopters are equally important.
Visits with the kittens can be scheduled once they're settled in and at least six weeks old. If a match is made, the wee ones can go home within a day or two of being spayed/neutered.
Surgery is scheduled when the kittens reach 2 months and 2 pounds.
Orphaned kittens, particularly those that are bottle-fed, grow more slowly than those with mamas, so it's not uncommon for the kittens fostered here to be 10 weeks old at the time of adoption.
All kittens will be microchipped, receive their initial vaccines and FeLV test before heading home.
Visits and adoptions are done at The Humane Society in Tacoma. All HS policies and procedures apply.
The Truth About Declawing
Most of us are aware of the inhumanity involved in declawing kitties. Learn the facts here and share them at every opportunity.
Lots of people simply don't know. It's our duty to educate them.
I have been volunteering and fostering kittens for the Humane Society since early 2006, and a part-time Veterinary Assistant there since June of 2010.
I am ridiculously fortunate to have the opportunity to do what fulfills me and makes me happy.
