Age: 4 weeks
Breed: Domestic short hair
Foster Period: 4 weeks

Hi all,

Today we’ve got a pair of 4 week old kittens that currently need some help in the feeding department. Right now we are syringe feeding them but they should start making the process of eating on their own over the course of the next week. They are also fighting off a kitty cold so they’ll need to take medication for the next 10 days. These kittens are going to need a little more care than your average foster animal so we’re looking for those of you out there with a little more experience.

Please let us know if you are available to help,

UPDATE: Beorn found his foster home

by Joseph Romero on April 28, 2015

Name: Beorn
Age: 4 weeks
Breed: American Pit Bull Mix
Foster Period: 4 weeks

Hi all,

This little bundle of joy is named Beorn, guess whomever named this little one is a fan of Lord of the Rings. 🙂 Anyway, we are looking for a foster home that’s going to have a lot of time to offer this little one as he’ll need 3 to 4 square meals a day since he’s a growing boy. So if you’ve got the next 4 weeks free and some TLC to offer little Beorn then please let me know.

Thanks again!
