Kitten Army Recruiting Jacksonville Foster Families

There’s a new army in town, and after a boot camp this weekend, they’ll be trained and ready. Their mission? Taking care of Jacksonville’s foster pets.

Pop Tart is one month old. She’s one of hundreds of kittens who arrive here at Riverside’s Animal Care and Protective Services every spring. It’s the time of year when the shelters are flooded with kittens that need foster care outside of a shelter environment. Last year more than 6,000 kittens showed up here alone.
