DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - LifeLine Animal Project said they are trying to find forever and foster homes for nearly 400 cats and kittens.
Their DeKalb County Animal Services location has taken in about 250 cats with about 187 of those being kittens. Another 135 cats are currently being fostered. And up to 10 litters of kittens are arriving daily at LifeLine's Fulton County shelter.
“Kittens have immature immune systems and do better in foster homes,” LifeLine Public Relations Director Karen Hirsch was quoted as saying in a release sent to FOX 5 News. “Mama cats and kittens also fair better in a home environment, because it isn't as noisy or stressful as the shelter, so we really need temporary fosters to help these kitties out and make space for others.”
Anyone interested in fostering a cat can fill out an application at LifelineAnimal.org/how-to-help/volunteer/foster.
