Newborn Kitten Rescue saves and rehabilitates orphaned neonatal kittens that would otherwise die or be euthanized. We are a 501(c)3 volunteer-focused organization based in Scottsdale that works exclusively with Arizona animal shelters to intake their highest needs kittens, the most fragile ones that are sick, injured or underweight.
We established Saving Kittens in Partnership (SKIP), a unique program that accepts at-risk kittens from our partner animal shelters to give these neonates a chance at a healthy life in loving adoptive homes. We care for kittens with the support of a network of skilled fosters trained in the specialty care of neonatal kittens and assume all expenses for their veterinary care. Once restored to health, we return adoption-ready kittens to the originating shelter for spay/neuter, microchipping and adoption.
At this time, we have no physical location so we are unable to accept kittens from the public. If you find an orphaned kitten, and after you are sure its mother is not returning, following is a list of some of the agencies that may be able to offer assistance: Arizona Humane Society, Heidi’s Village, Pinal County Animal Shelter, Yavapai Humane Society, and the Arizona Animal Welfare League.
