Last week, the Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation awarded $237,000 to three organizations that spay, neuter, adopt, foster and nurse neonatal kittens in the first-ever such grant funding for rescue organizations, said Bill Crowe, executive director of the Foundation. The funds are expected to save 1,000 kittens that would otherwise perish during “kitten season,” an annual surge in the number of neonatal kittens in the shelter, possibly making Los Angeles a “no-kill” city, said Crowe.
L.A. City Shelters are currently 90-percent “no-kill” shelters, meaning that 90 percent of the animals that reach the shelter are adopted or fostered.
