In Our Nursery
The little ones continue to arrive and we need help!  If you can foster, please let us know as quickly as possible!   Special items for kitten care are also highly desired during these months and year round.  Please see our Ways to Help page for details. 

Will you also consider an additional donation to help us feed these tiny kittens?

PLEASE NOTE: Kittens are not available for adoption until they weigh 2 pounds and can be spay or neutered. Kitten adoptions include the spay/neuter, testing for leukemia, and their complete series of kitten shots and deworming. This is usually between 8-10 weeks of age.

We need bottle feeders! Please contact us if you would like to bottlefeed baby kittens this summer.

Kittens are born every day this time of year and many will enter our network of foster care with various families.  Kittens are a lifelong commitment and the decision to adopt should be a thoughtful one.  Feel free to stop by our rescue any Saturday at PETCO to learn how you can get your home ready for a cat or kitten.  We request that all adoptions be to "indoor" only homes.  We have invested a great deal in our foster cats and kittens, and want you and your new kitty to have a long lasting relationship together that an indoor home can provide.
Please visit us on Saturdays from 11 AM to 3:30 PM at the PETCO in La Canada or Santa Clarita to meet our kittens available for adoption.  Unfortunately, we cannot place a "hold" on kittens in foster care.


What is a foster home?
Foster homes are the backbone of any pet rescue organization. They are families just like yours that provide a safe, temporary home environment for rescued cats and kittens to rest, recuperate and prepare to meet their forever families. The cats in foster care benefit greatly from love and attention and living in a home; for some rescue kittens, it may be their very first home.

What does the foster home provide?
As a rescue foster home, you provide the food, a comfy place to sleep and all the love you can spare. Happy Strays will cover all of your foster kitty’s medical expenses, including medications, and provides any special equipment or supplies.

We ask the foster family to treat the foster cat like any other member of the family. Get to know the pet. Any insight you can offer is helpful to the rescue's placement decision. Together, you and Happy Strays can decide what kind of home will be best for your foster kitty.

What if I want to adopt my foster kitty?
We understand that families often fall in love with their foster kitty and can’t imagine their home without them. If you and Happy Strays Rescue decide the cat or kitten is a good match for your family, we are happy to discuss their permanent placement with you.
