'Kitten-Garten' nursery opens in Pasadena

- The 'Kitten-Garten', a new kitten nursery in partnership with the Pasadena Humane Society and SPCA and the  County of Los Angeles Baldwin Park Animal Care Center will temporarily house four to eight-week-old kittens until they are ready for adoption.

The ASPCA will transport young kittens from Los Angeles County’s Baldwin Park Animal Care Center to the Pasadena Humane Society’s Kitten-Garten weekly. Kittens will be cared for by Pasadena Humane staff, on-site volunteers and foster parents.

Many kittens will be made available for adoption at the Pasadena Humane Society, while others will be transferred to partner shelters across the country by the ASPCA’s Animal Relocation Program.

“The opening of Kitten-Garten marks the beginning of a critical life-saving partnership with the ASPCA and County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control,” said Julie Bank, President & CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. “We look forward to growing this project, which aims to save one thousand kittens in its first year.”

The Pasadena Humane Society is calling on community members to help kittens in need. The organization is looking for nursery volunteers, foster homes, adopters, and monetary and in-kind donations to further grow the program. For more information, visit pasadenahumane.org.
