Lifesaving Project

Saving Kittens

Neonatal kittens are the single most at-risk group of animals who enter shelters nationwide. These delicate babies require intensive, round-the-clock attention and specialized care to survive to an adoptable age, making them likely candidates for euthanasia in shelters. In 2016, with generous funding from Best Friends Animal Society, SNPLA launched our life-saving neonatal Kitten Nursery. Since then, we have rescued over 6,000 kittens, with approximately 800 kittens rescued in 2022.
