Our Kitten Nursery Manual – a life-saving resource…
Each year, thousands of sick, injured and orphaned kittens flood into animal shelters and rescue organizations across the country. This surge frequently challenges the physical and emotional capacities of staff and volunteers. We’ve partnered with leaders in the animal-welfare field who manage successful kitten nurseries to share their knowledge and experiences in order to help others who are saving kittens:
- American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
- Austin Pets Alive!
- Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles
- Jacksonville Humane Society
- San Diego Humane Society
The result is a Kitten Nursery Manual full of information from detailed interviews with staff and volunteers at the five nurseries and from reviews of procedural manuals, budgets and administrative documents – combined with the expertise of The National Kitten Coalition on how to care for vulnerable kittens.
“We are so excited to launch our kitten nursery! Your nursery manual was very helpful. It provided ideas that we hadn’t considered previously and insight into different ways of launching a nursery as well as early challenges that were met.”
Clinic Manager, Oklahoma City Humane Society
The Kitten Nursery Manual was a donor-funded project…

Our strong and well-researched educational programs and projects combined with your financial support create a life-saving solution to kitten euthanasia. With your help, we put life-saving information in the hands of animal shelter and rescue staff, volunteers and fosters as they work to help kittens in their communities.

“One of the amazing things about animal welfare is the willingness to share and learn from each other. It was the wisdom and experience of many that helped us get our nursery up and running. We are grateful to them, and The National Kitten Coalition for putting this guide together so others might benefit from our experience at JHS and others who participated.”
