PHOENIX - Two cans of wet kitten food is all that remains for kittens at the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA.
According to the shelter's Facebook page, two cans is all that is left in their foster department. They have over 200 underage kittens in foster homes around the Valley that they have to feed.
The shelter said the wet kitten food is different than wet food meant for adult cats as it helps transition a kitten from its mother's milk and into solid food. They say this process is crucial and necessary for a kitten's survival. The shelter said the ability for a kitten to eat on its own is necessary as they lack bottle feeding fosters.
This season, the shelter has taken in more kittens than last year's intake of 1,300, and two cans just isn't enough.
They are in desperate need for donations; kitten wet food from Royal Canin and Purina Pro Plan are preferred but other brands are glaldy accepted. Those wishing to assist can have the kitten food delivered to the shelter or dropped off at their Phoenix location. Their address is 25 N. 40th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85034.
