The Clermont Pets Alive! Bottle Baby Program is a creative approach to saving an entire class of especially fragile, homeless animals. The program targets orphaned, unweaned kittens typically fated for euthanasia at Clermont’s animal shelter.
Each year, especially during the breeding season, which spans from March to October, our shelter is overwhelmed with orphaned kittens. Prior to CPA!’s introduction of the Bottle Baby program, nearly all of these kittens were euthanized because neither the shelter nor other groups in the community could provide the intensive care they need to survive.
Saving so many kittens means a greater need for kitten milk, food, supplies, medicines and skilled care, as baby kittens can become very ill quickly and will die without swift treatment. Please consider helping our groundbreaking and live-saving Bottle Baby program through volunteering, fostering and/or donating!
