Introducing the Itty Bitty Kitty Committee! Learn how to foster bottle babies for Capital Humane Society!

Kitten season is fast approaching! Every spring and summer we see a significant increase in our kitten population. Many of these little guys and gals will need lots of time and attention. With your help, we can help these bottle babies grow up to be big cats! 

These kittens are usually under six weeks of age and aren't off milk yet. We need your help to provide them with the love and care they need before they're ready to be spayed or neutered and head to the Pieloch Pet Adoption Center to find their furever families!


In order to become a bottle baby foster parent, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Have the consent of all adults living in your household.
  • Have the consent of your landlord, if applicable.
  • Have current vaccinations for all pets in your home.
  • Agree to keep foster felines indoors, at all times, and separated from other pets in the home.
  • Complete the Bottle Baby Foster Care Application below. A virtual home visit is required after the application process.
  • Attend and complete the Bottle Babies 101 course. 
  • Must be able to provide feedings at least every four hours.

Bottle Babies 101 Course

After you complete your application, our Community Programs Coordinator will contact you to do a virtual visit.

You will be contacted 48-72 hours after you submit your application.

In this course, you will learn all about caring for your kittens! This course includes teaching you how to properly feed, socialize, clean, care, and observe the kittens.
