Bottle Baby Kitten Program


The Bottle Baby Kitten Kit Program was developed to provide resources to care takers that are caring for orphaned kittens that are too young to be adopted. Young kittens that are separated from their mother sadly are unlikely to survive on their own without assistance. 

As part of Humane Pennsylvania’s Bottle Baby Kitten Kit Program, we offer care takers of unweaned kittens a helpful kitten kit. This kit comes complete with a booklet as a reference guide to the appropriate care of bottle baby kittens.

Learn more and pick up your free Bottle Baby Kitten Kit today.
