As the spring and summer months roll around, animal shelters see a huge influx of orphaned kittens and puppies. While you might think that being surrounded by hundreds of kittens and puppies sounds like a dream, for these shelters – many of which are already at maximum capacity – providing the special care and attention needed to help these babies thrive can be extremely overwhelming. Thankfully, this is where foster pet parents come in!
The kittens in this video came into the Sante Fe Animal Shelter in desperate need of a foster parent. Kittens their age need to be fed every few hours so the shelter’s coordinator had to find a willing foster ASAP.
Luckily, a kind man named Peter volunteered to help out and happily took in the five needy kitties. Although caring for kittens is a lot of work, this kind man was willing to do whatever it takes to give them a fighting shot at life and a future forever home!
