Each summer, shelters are flooded with newborn kittens and are in need of generous volunteers to help care for them until they are old enough to find a family of their own. These volunteers are called fosters, and play a critical role in saving hundreds of tiny kitten lives by taking these vulnerable animals into their homes for just a few weeks to help them grow and stay healthy.
This PSA encourages New Yorkers to get involved by fostering a kitten (or three or four), relieving shelters from overcrowding and getting a few snuggles at the same time.
Best Friends Animal Society is on the ground in New York City, helping to save the lives of homeless pets and supporting other organizations in their efforts to make New York no-kill permanently. The Best Friends Lifesaving Center in New York City serves as both a space for local pets to find homes, and an outlet for the national no-kill message, helping to spread the word about Best Friends’ efforts to lead the country to no-kill by 2025.
