Occasionally, situations occur where one is left to hand raise a puppy or kitten who is too young to be separated from its mother. This can be extremely time-consuming and occasionally, quite overwhelming. We would like to provide some resources to help you help these babies until they can thrive on their own.
The ASPCA urges pet owners to think twice about flying their pets on commercial airlines, especially if they plan on checking them in as cargo.
Best web sites to consult for care:
Veterinarypartner.com—search “nursing kittens” and you will find a great article on “Orphan Puppy & Kitten Care”.
Kittenrescue.org—good information on kitten care
☼ Some rescue groups will take young puppies or kittens if needed, and others might take them once they are done bottle feeding. Please let us know if you need a list of organizations to contact.☼
