STORY TIME – TRASH CAN KITTIES

The phone rings late at night. Three baby kittens were found in a trash can. Bark Avenue Foundation focuses on prevention – we are committed to spay/neuter, helping struggling and homeless pet-owners, and humane education. This is an emergency, and to prevent these three neonatal kittens from entering the shelter, they need our help. The Bark Avenue Foundation team does the only thing we can do and jumps into action to save three little lives.

The kind soul who found the kittens transports to the foster’s home, where they are examined, fed, and put in a warm, secure bed. They are estimated to be about 2-3 weeks old. Their eyes are crusted and some medical intervention is administered.

We name them after superheroes, because that is what they are given their struggle to survive: Kent, Stark, and Parker.

Time quickly passes and soon The Trash Trio graduate from the bottle to semi-solid food. An exciting but messy process. Soon they are up running around, exploring their world like all happy healthy kittens. They have had their first FVRCP vaccination and tested negative for FeLv/FIV. They will be spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and dewormed before they will be available to be adopted.

Soon the time arrives for The Trash Trio’ to find their forever homes. There will be meet and greet visits, an application, and finally a home visit. Their early beginning was tragic and trying, but now their lives truly begin in a happy loving home. We are glad that we could contribute to their happily ever after.

This time these innocents were saved. Sadly there are many more that are less fortunate. Please spay and neuter your pets. Numerous groups offer free and low-cost spay/neuter throughout the LA Metro Area as well as other cities throughout the country.
