TRAINING RESOURCE: ORPHAN KITTENS BOOKLET
Kitten Lady offers written training materials to shelters, rescue groups, and individuals with the goal of increasing public education about kitten care.
The Orphan Kittens booklet is a 12-page resource about how to care for a kitten, from initial assessment all the way through to adoption. Covering issues such as feeding, stimulation, veterinary needs, and even compassion fatigue and self care, this is a great tool to help foster parents feel prepared for kitten care.
There are three ways to get the booklet:

This is a beautiful 12 page glossy booklet coming in packs of 25, and is to be used for the following:
1) Foster Programs: This booklet is to be shared as a resource for new and existing foster parents who care for kittens. If possible, use this in tandem with hands-on training from your shelter staff or an outside trainer (learn about Kitten Lady's trainings here.)
2) Intervention Programs: This is also a fantastic resource for people attempting to surrender kittens at the shelter. Simply encouraging these people to foster (and providing educational materials) can eliminate the need for impoundment. Intervention programs can dramatically decrease intake--so keep these booklets on hand, and provide them to community members who find orphan kittens.
3) Staff Trainings: This booklet should be shared with all animal care and customer service staff to ensure that all employees have a basic understanding of the care of orphan kittens.
Please note that our sponsorship allows shelters to receive up to 100 free booklets each, after which we ask that they purchase them at cost at this link. Thank you so much!
