Thank you for your interest in our mission and work!

Kittens too young to eat on their own or too young for adoption are one of the largest groups of animals euthanized every year in animal shelters across the United States. The National Kitten Coalition is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing survival rates of rescued kittens, and we accomplish our mission by educating and training animal shelter staff, rescue groups, volunteers and fosters to provide high-quality, cost-effective care; providing outreach and educational materials to animal-welfare professionals and the public; and promoting cooperation and information sharing within the animal-welfare community.
