Bottle Baby Foster Program

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 five 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!
