Earlier this year, the ASPCA opened up a new nursery to offer specialized, "life-saving care for kittens too young to survive on their own." Yesterday, the last group of adorable felines "graduated," and the ASPCA is says they will be up for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center.
Gail Buchwald, senior vice president of the ASPCA Adoption Center, noted that the facility is NYC's first high-volume, neonate kitten nursery and nearly 300 kittens have passed through the doors. Ooh and ahh right now, then go adopt one or two:
The ASPCA says, "The nursery was designed to contain over 200 adjustable cages, each with the ability to accommodate a combination of orphaned kittens or a litter and nursing mother. Kittens received around-the-clock, life-saving care from more than 60 specially-trained ASPCA staff and volunteers until they were old enough to be micro-chipped, vaccinated and spayed/neutered. At eight weeks of age, they are ready to be made available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center."
One technician explained as he fed kitten milk replacement through a syringe to a five-day-old kitten, "We’re doing the mama’s job." You can also donate to the ASPCA.
