A special facility is opening on April 18 in Charlotte, NC. The area’s first-ever kitten nursery, able to handle upwards of 50 kittens at a time. With this being the start of “kitten season,” the timing is perfect and the organization is hoping that people will want to come in and get their kitten snuggles.
“People work, so the pool for that type of foster home is very small and limited. Being able to have a nursery like this, where we can have 20 litters at a time and have volunteers coming in taking care of them, we’re going to be able to save a lot more,” Melissa Knicely from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police’s Animal Care and Control told WCNC News.
For anyone in the area who would like to volunteer, you must be at least 18 years of age, fill out an application, agree to a background check, and attend an orientation and training. Click here for more information.
