Kitten Season & HOW YOU CAN HELP

With kitten season nipping at our paws, JHS is in preparation mode and we need your help! We’re assembling kitten packs that are designed to fulfill every need of a kitten who comes to our shelter without Mama. These include items like milk replacement, bottles and rice socks to keep the babies warm.


We have an Amazon wishlist that has every item we need, including which items are most needed and why. With your kind donation we can get through kitten season together!

If you’re interested in being a potential kitten foster or if a kitten falls into your hands, JHS has a few great tips:

  • If you come across an orphaned kitten, click here. Or, click here, for DIY heating pads.
  • Receive a free kitten foster training class April 29th from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at 8464 Beach Blvd., hosted by the Jacksonville Kitten Army, by registering here. There is no obligation to foster after taking the class, it is designed to save the lives of orphaned kittens in Jacksonville!

You can also visit our foster webpage for more information on becoming a foster parent.

Last year, more than 11,000 kittens under the age of 5 months arrived at Jacksonville shelters. We can’t save them without your help. Thank you!
