Help save lives and prevent pet overpopulation...

Best Ways You Can Help During Kitten Season


We see a LOT of abandoned kittens coming into the shelter, especially in the Spring.  If you happen to find a litter that appears to be abandoned by their mother, please wait at least 24 hours to confirm that she is not coming back.  Sometimes she is out hunting or waiting for you to leave.  It's very likely that she is nearby and will move her kittens to protect them, and they won't be there when you check again.  This waiting period is important because the mortality rate for newborn kittens taken from their mother is very high.

If you have any questions regarding what appear to be abandoned kittens, please send an e-mail to our Foster Coordinator.


Cayden Found His Forever Family

Come see all the kittens (and other animals) like Cayden that need a good home at the Upland Animal Shelter.  You might find a perfect match or two...


Our youngest and most vulnerable kittens need all they help they can get.  They are too small to stay in the shelter and must be fostered in a home environment until they are old enough to be adopted.  To become a foster, send an e-mail to our Foster Coordinator or fill out our Online Foster Application.  


We always need monetary donations and supplies such as kitty litter, litter pans, and kitten food.  You can make a donation here or shop our Shelter Wish List on Amazon and have your donation sent directly to us at Upland Animal Shelter.
