Unwanted, abandoned, lost, and feral cats are too often taken to or picked up by shelters. While a few are adopted or retrieved by their owners, the vast majority are euthanized. In Los Angeles County the number of animals killed per year is over 100,000! These are not just sick and injured animals, this figure also includes adoptable kittens and healthy cats — all that could have been given another chance at a life. This is where Kitten Rescue and other like-minded humane organizations come in to help.
