LA Animal Services receives thousands of young kittens every year. The shelters ability to save many of these orphaned animals is directly dependent on the number of foster volunteers waiting to take these babies home to provide temporary foster care.

Save the Kittens Walk-in Foster Weekend, August 26-27

Become a kitten foster and save lives! Visit Los Angeles Animal Services shelters on August 26 or 27 to learn how to foster kittens. You’ll receive an on-the-spot orientation and the supplies to successfully foster a kitten or litter of kittens. Fostering is a fun, temporary commitment that makes a huge lifesaving impact at our city shelters. This is a great way to be a big hero to a tiny soul. Foster kittens and help make L.A. a no-kill city!

Foster Volunteers are needed for:

  • Momma cats with nursing kittens
  • Unweaned kittens (bottle feeders)
  • Young kittens eating on their own

Foster volunteers are the future of life-saving. If you are available for a couple of weeks or a month, please help orphaned kittens get the chance they need for a happy life.

Ready to get started?

Print and bring your completed Foster Application and photo ID to your nearest LA City Animal Shelter or ask for a Foster Application at any of our six shelters. We’ll set you up with an adorable kitten or kittens to begin fostering right away!

If you are already an approved Foster Volunteer, let your shelter know when you are available to care for some kittens.

You can also visit our participating partners, Stray Cat Alliance and Best Friends in L.A., to help foster kittens. Please go to nkla.org/savethekittens for more details.
