Adopting a kitten? The Kitten Lady is a widely recognized source for "everything kitten"...from getting ready for your new kitten to kitten health and behavioral issues.
Too many abandoned cats and litters of homeless kittens challenge the resources of many Gilroy rescues and shelters. We are no different. Food, shelter and medical costs limit what we can do. Insufficient space means we sometimes are left with no choice but to turn away cats and kittens needing shelter.
Your contribution is an act of compassion with lasting benefits. It contributes to our continued work to foster, adopt and reduce populations of community cats in Gilroy. It saves lives.
Find holistic solutions for cat and kitty health along with informative videos filled with tips and information for experienced as well as new "cat parents.
