Save a KittenEvery May, Pet Food Express hosts our annual Save a Kitten fundraiser at all our stores!
If you’re thinking about adopting a kitten, now’s the perfect time.
Every spring, thousands of kittens are born in California. Most of these kittens are found on the streets, separated from their mothers before they have been weaned.
Unfortunately, shelters become so overwhelmed that they are unable to provide care for all these kittens. However, with the help of foster families, kittens who are cared for until adoptable will almost certainly find forever homes.
That’s where you come in.
Every year, our customers rise to the challenge of helping California’s kittens in three ways:
Foster: We and our customers work with 68 rescue groups to match foster families with pre-adoption kittens. Foster parents generally keep kittens for 2 - 6 weeks (both pre-wean and post-wean options are available). Once the kittens are old enough to be adopted, our placement rate is very high.
- Adopt: Given the extraordinarily wide selection, it’s no surprise that many of our customers choose to adopt kittens during this time.
- Donate: Year after year, we’re inspired by our customers’ generosity during kitten season. Last year, they donated $98,000 in cash and product to the local rescues associated with each store, providing much needed help when cat rescues need it most.
Together, we can make this year’s “Kitten Season” a wonderful welcome to the world for these new kittens.
