KITTEN ACTION was launched in 1998 to rescue abandoned and unwanted kittens and to care for them until they are old enough to go to permanent homes.
Because most animal welfare shelters do not have the staff, funds, facilities, or sadly, sometimes even the will, to care for under-age, sickly or untamed kittens, these animals are usually “put down” immediately. Scores of unwanted or abandoned kittens, who would otherwise be put down or die cruel deaths are saved every year by Kitten Action, a Durban-based organisation that takes in kittens from as young as a few hours old and bottle-feeds them. More importantly, it finds homes for them and ensures that they are sterilized before reaching six months of age.
In line with Kitten Action’s motto : Every One Deserves A Chance, tiny kittens like these are bottle-reared by caring foster parents and when they are old enough, loving homes are found for them.
All potential adopters are telephonically screened to establish suitability. Upon adoption, new ‘parents’ sign an adoption form in which they agree to care for the kitten, etc and to get it sterilized (at 5 months for females, 6 months for males). New parents are contacted within 48 hours to check how the kitten is settling in, and again to remind them about spaying/neutering.
