Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Palm Beach County’s largest and oldest private shelter, is looking for foster parents to help with the influx of kittens.
The league has a successful foster program that aims to help as many animals as possible by providing temporary homes for them. Some animals are newborns, pregnant or nursing, sick, injured, under socialized, or animals that do not enjoy the shelter environment. Sometimes, the league simply doesn’t have enough space to house them.
Currently, the league is looking to place 126 kittens in foster homes. “With kitten season being year-round in South Florida, at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, we currently have 200 kittens in foster homes. The recent opening of our neonatal kitten nursery, which provides the round-the-clock caring these newborns need, has been a tremendous success. This means we need more temporary foster homes for the kittens before they find their forever homes,” said Rich Anderson, executive director and CEO of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.
