Please visit Save the Kittens – El Paso Animal Services for more information on how to help kittens.
Kittens from birth to eight weeks do best when raised by their mothers. If you find a litter of healthy, young kittens in a safe place, such as a yard, the best thing you can do is to leave them alone. If they’re healthy, it means mom is nearby and will soon return to care for them.
If the kittens are dirty, ill, lethargic, thin or cold to the touch, and you’ve noticed mom hasn’t been back to check on them, that is the time to intervene. If you are able to foster them, but need assistance, contact the Humane Society of El Paso foster program at email@example.com.
If you’re unable to foster them, please take them to Animal Services.
