Operation Kitten!

WAG has a wonderful volunteer who helps us with all things kitten: she’ll take pregnant mothers, mothers with young kittens, or even orphan kittens and do a great job with them. This volunteer also rescues feral cats on her own (WAG isn’t set up to handle feral cats): for true ferals, she does trap-neuter-release. But for young kittens who can still be turned into house cats, this volunteer spends months getting them to be trusting, loving companions.
This last summer, she took in about 15 kittens. Some came along quickly and have already been placed, but she still has 11 left. They are all at the point now where they would benefit from being in homes of their own. As our volunteer also needs to move, WAG has agreed to help her, so we need to place these kittens as soon as possible.

Below is Dante, just one of the 11 kittens we urgently need help to place.

The kittens are all about 7 months old, and all have been spayed or neutered and have been tested for Feline Leukemia, FIV, and FIP, treated for parasites, and vaccinated. For some of them, we are willing to relax our indoor-cat only rule. We’re also reducing our adoption fee to $25 per kitten.

They have been worked with a lot, but all will need weeks to adjust to a new home and people, and all still have a ways to go to completely come out of their shells so will need patience and effort on the parts of their new owners to bring them to their full potential. They are all currently happily living in a house. They are used to other cats, and we think they all would be fine with a mellow dog. No young kids.

So, if you’ve been toying with adopting a cat, now is a great opportunity to adopt a gorgeous kitten (or two!). And please help us spread the word about these wonderful cats.

Here is a link to the Operation Kitten flyer with all the kittens pictures and information..
Please forward to as many people as possible. Thank you for your help.


WAG has been rescuing and placing homeless pets since 1996, we are in our 17th year.
This has been made possible by the many supporters who believe in what we do.
Thank you for your continued support.

 [Editor's Note: WAG is a wonderful group. All my cats have been from them - they let you "test" them out in your home. Also, they will take back any animal if the owner can no longer care for it. For example, if an allergy develops, or an older owner moves to assisted living.]
