There are over 70 million homeless animals living in the U.S. Of these animals, only around six to eight million ever find their way into animal shelters, and a tiny fraction of these animals get adopted into a forever home. Due to issues with overcrowding and limited supplies, shelters can’t always care for all the animals that are brought in and, sadly, have to euthanize new residents.
Chloe, the eight-day-old kitten was one of these animals, slotted for euthanasia just hours after she was admitted to a shelter in Los Angeles. This poor orphaned kitten needed round the clock attention and regular bottle feedings, a level of care that the shelter could not afford to take on. It was decided that if a foster parent couldn’t be found for this small life, she would have to be put down.
Luckily, shelter volunteers were able to locate a willing foster through Cats at the Studio Rescue to take Chloe in! Saved from a horrible fate, this precious kitten now has the chance to grow up and experience the wonders of life. Once she is strong enough, Chloe will be on the hunt for a forever home, all thanks to the amazing people who stepped in to save her life.
