Found a litter of kittens?

When we find a litter of kittens, our good-hearted instincts tell us to rush to their aid. Stop! Don’t Kit-nap Kittens! Their mom is likely off in search of food for herself and will return to her kittens so please don’t intervene. Always wait and watch for the mother cat for at least 24 hours before taking in kittens. It’s critical that the kittens remain in their mother’s care as she offers the best chance for survival.

If you find kittens, have watched for mom to return and are extremely certain that they are orphaned you can then step in and help by caring for the kittens until they’re old enough to find homes. Miami-Dade County Animal Services can provide you with a Kitten Care Guide and Kitten Care Kit that will contain items you will need to care for them based on availability. Once the kittens are 2 months old – about 2 pounds, bring them to a veterinarian or to Animal Services to have them spayed/neutered before they go to their new homes.
