It’s kitten season.
Every week, dozens of stray kittens are brought into the Irvine Animal Care Center and the OC Animal Shelter in Tustin.
Many of these kittens are too young to even open their eyes, and unfortunately many of them will not survive without their mothers.
Neonatal kittens are especially susceptible to picking up infectious diseases in-shelter because their immune systems are so weak
Many of the current shelter volunteers already foster kittens at home, but their resources are stretched thin.
New volunteers are needed who can foster the kittens, which involves bottle feeding the kittens every three or four hours.
The kittens can survive only with this attention and care.
Bottle baby fostering may be best for people who work from home, have flexible schedules, or are retired.
The shelters are located at 6443 Oak Creek, Irvine, CA 92618 and 1630 Victory Road, Tustin, CA 92782.
Never bottle-fed a kitten before? No problem!
Our shelters have experienced volunteers and staff happy who will help every step of the way.
Need Supplies? Our shelters have you covered!

Your love and care could mean the difference between life and death for these young kittens.
