help finding rescue and adoption places
I am being overrun with my cats and all the new kittens, I'm looking for a rescue or adoption (NO KILL) to bring this to a halt. I have tried numerous times before but all I read is "We're full" Well, needless to say I can't keep this up. I'm disabled and on a limited income so I'm getting desperate. I love all animals and had a very bad experience in the past and that is why I've tried to keep them protected. Now its out of hand. Please Help.....

Unfortunately, you've learned the first lesson resuce workers are taught by our organizations, which is that one pair of cats and their offspring can produce at least 10,000 others in their lifetime. This is why we advocate, ad nauseum, spaying and neutering. All shelters ARE full, especially at this time of year. You will have little luck finding one that will take your kittens/cats as they all have their own to deal with. Most organizations will, however, help you find homes for them if you agree to keep them in your home as a "foster parent". They will keep you and what cats you have on their list, and if they get a call looking for a particular kind, they'll give the potential adopter your information. Shelters are used to dealing with people in your situation. I would suggest that you persevere by calling around to as many shelters as you can until you find the help you need. Good luck.

If these cats and kittens are turned into a shelter the ones not adopted will most likely get killed. I believe Petsmart offers foster care for pets, in which people pay little or no money to temporarily keep the pet and find it a home. This may be a good idea for your cats. Also, if you havn't already, turn to family, friends, and friends of friends. Perhaps they want one of your kittens? In the meantime, do invest on neutoring and spaying the cats- in the long run its cheaper and less work than caring for-and paying for- many litters of kittens. People are more lyable to adopt cats that have already been fixed. Best of luck :)
