Kitten season is here!

Kana 7 week old boy
loves to play with his adult brother foster cats
he is tiny but doesn't seem to know that

Well it may be the dog days of summer, especially during this heat wave in most of the country and NYC but it also is the height of kitten season. They literally are coming out of the walls. Dozens of kittens are handed into the city shelter and most of them being put down because there are not enough adopters. We are part of a mission to make NYC a no kill by 2015. I sometimes wonder....yes the numbers are down but many people still refuse to spay or neuter. We here at Ready for Rescue try to save as many as we can. It's easy math, the more foster homes, the more cats and dogs we can save. If you can't foster, there are other ways to help; donations, volunteering, spread the word to adopt. This week we rescued 4 little lives, we were the only group that called in for them. If we didn't call they would have been out down.

These guys are all orphans and now just waiting for their furever home.
