    We Need You!  Please Foster

Franklin County Humane Society and our local Shelter needs your help.  It’s kitten season – with the intake of kittens rapidly rising to form what Dr. Sandra Newbury, DVM, director of the shelter medicine program at University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine, calls a "Data Kitten Mountain." In many cases of open admission shelters, the number of kittens who enter the shelter far exceeds the capacity of the shelter. Neonate kittens coming in from pet homes pose a bigger challenge than just capacity – they require a significantly increased level of care and level of disease control. So much so that in many shelters including our own, are simply deemed untreatable and do not receive a live outcome.

Brick-and-mortar shelters built without the proper housing and air systems are not healthy places for neonate kittens – and over the years, many of us have experienced images that are now burned in our memories of neonate kittens struggling to survive, and the staff struggling to keep them alive in housing that just is not conducive to keeping neonates healthy. Harnessing the power of our volunteers and their networks can be huge for saving the lives of neonate kittens in our shelters.

While our ultimate goal is to stop the intake of these kittens through outreach of targeted spay/neuter and safety nets, until the day when kitten mountain becomes flat, we are in need of emergency brigade of neonate foster homes – those that can take a mom and babies, and others able to take neonates without moms?  We are hoping that building a life-saving team of fosters that are able to pick up on the day those kittens come in – and can then help not only raise those kitties, but also helps us adopt them out.   Franklin County Humane Society pays for medical expenses and provide food, litter, etc.   Please go to to put in a foster application.  The kittens thank you!!
