A New 'Kitten-Garten' Could Save 1,000 Kittens

There's a sad truth to kittens. Sometimes, because of lack of funding and space… they don't always make it. Thankfully mainly have realized this and are making a difference. Like the Pasadena Humane Society who will be giving kittens between 4 to 8 weeks old, a chance at life through the new "Kitten-garten" program.

    Because of a very thoughtful $325,000 gift, the new nursery will give around-the-clock care to kittens that are too young for adoption. These kittens would likely be euthanized elsewhere because of a lack of funds and space due to overcrowding at facilities throughout Los Angeles County, according to the Humane Society.

    The first class of the kitten-garten arrived in Pasadena from the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center, this August. The CEO and president of the Pasadena Humane Society, Julie Bank stated, "We look forward to growing this project, which aims to save 1,000 kittens in its first year."

    The Pasadena Humane partnered up with American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the L.A. County Department of Animal Care and Control to create the new nursery. The 24-7 around-the clock care will be given by Humane Society staff, on-site volunteers and foster parents that will watch over the cute kittens until they are ready and old enough to be adopted. Some kittens will be available in Pasadena while others will be transferred to shelters throughout the country though the ASPCA's "Animal Relocation Program," according to the Pasadena Humane Society.
