BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — Brevard County Animal Services is asking residents with time on their hands to lend a helping hand to very young kittens that have come into the shelter without their mother.

The youngsters, sometimes only days old, must be bottle fed in order to survive.

Animal Care Center staff will teach prospective Foster Parents how to bottle feed. Foster parents typically provide formula and bottles, tubes or eyedroppers that can be purchased from local pet supply stores. Foster parents must be able to commit the time and care to ensure the health and survival of the foster pet. In addition, parents are also required to bring the litter into the shelter’s clinic for any scheduled veterinary visits.

Foster Parents who are interested in adopting any of the pets in their care may do so once the foster care process is complete and the kitten is deemed healthy and old enough to be adopted.

“We currently need residents who are able to bottle feed kittens which cannot eat on their own,” said Mary Thompson, manager of the County’s South Animal Care Center on West Eau Gallie Boulevard in Melbourne.

“The kittens must be fed around the clock every two-to-three hours in order to stay healthy and grow.”

Applicants must be 18 years of age and a Brevard County resident to apply to become a Foster Parent. In addition, a Foster Care Parent Application must be completed and approved by Brevard County Animal Services.
