• AFRP Takes in 5 Abandoned Kittens Left in Dumpster in King City

     Animal Friends Rescue Project came to the aid of the Monterey County Animal Services on Tuesday February 24 when they received information that five abandoned 2 week old kittens had been found in a trash bag in a dumpster in King City.  The shelter routinely seeks help with underage kittens needing time and space to reach an age appropriate for adoption.  AFRP took the five kittens whose eyes had not yet opened in and placed them into a foster home able to provide the young ones with round the clock bottle feeding.  “AFRP is there for the 100’s of underage kittens that come into our shelter system during the spring and summer months. We provide loving foster homes and all the necessary medical care needed to get these precious lives ready for their new homes” said Executive Director Kelly Lehrian.

    “The five little black kittens are doing well in foster care and were very lucky to have been found.  It is tragic that this can happen to innocent animals in a community where there is access to help if an unwanted litter happens to occur” said Lehrian.

    “Access to affordable spay and neuter services is such a critical part of helping to end the pet homelessness problem and the issue of unwanted litters of kittens and puppies.  We are excited to be launching our new mobile spay neuter clinic very soon which will be able to bring spay neuter services out into underserved areas in our county” said Lehrian.

    Foster homes are always needed for cats and kittens especially in the spring.  If you are interested in helping more kittens needing a place to grow until they are old enough for adoption please contact AFRP at www.animalfriendsrescue.org or call 831-333-0722.  For more information on spay and neuter programs that AFRP currently has available please vist www.AFRPSpayPal.org or call 888-565-1287.
