Right now, DeKalb County Animal Services only has a handful of kittens, but Hirsch expects the shelter to welcome in dozens of kittens between this month and June.
After a short orientation, Kitten Sittin’ volunteers can assist the shelter with that volume by bottle feeding the kittens in two-hour shifts round the clock. Like newborn babies, newborn kittens have to be fed every two hours.
"If we can provide this round-the-clock care, we can have these kittens live long enough to make it to a loving home."
In addition to sitters, Lifeline needs donations of heat lamps, kitten formula, kitchen scales and cat food from the community.
