As shelters across Los Angeles have been closed for months due to the pandemic, we have been providing emergency care for cats and kittens. We are kindly requesting donations to help us provide and care for newborn kittens. Neonates are unable to regulate body temperature and thus need a constant heat source, which sometimes requires the use of incubators. Incubators provide a safe and stable environment with regulated temperature and humidity to help them grow healthy and strong. They also have the ability to provide supportive care including oxygen and nebulizers for sick kittens.
With the growing number of neonates rescued off the streets, we need your help to continue to provide them the best care possible.
We are in desperate need for four (4) incubators to help us care for these newborn kittens. The remainder of these funds will go towards oxygen, nebulizers, miscellaneous items, and of course veterinary care for newborns and kittens including but not limited to vaccinations, spay/neuter services, antibiotics, and deworming medication. We are in desperate need of:
· Four (4) incubators - $1,200 each
· Oxygen tanks - $780 each
· Nebulizers - $50 each
· Incubator blankets, pads, and cushions
· Incubator filters and tubing
· Sanitizing disinfectant cleaners
· Kitten Milk Replacement
Alley Cat Rescue (ACR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization leading the way in promoting humane, nonlethal, and compassionate care for ALL cats. ACR’s programs assist individuals who help cats nationwide by providing resources, locating free and low cost spay/neuter programs, assisting with cat behavioral problems to keep cats in their homes, promoting a better understanding of feline diseases as well as programs and information to keep cats out of the shelter system, such as neuter-before-adoption, early age spay/neuter, Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), and the Feral Fix Challenge for veterinarians. We also have two adoption sites in Los Angeles and manage a working cat program.
