Mom will likely return. Please don’t intervene.

When we find a litter of kittens, our good-hearted instincts tell us to rush to the aid of these fragile felines. However, human intervention is typically not required. The best thing we can do is leave the kittens alone. Mom will likely return shortly, and it’s critical that the kittens remain in her care as she offers the best chance for survival. 
If you find a litter of kittens and are extremely certain that they are orphaned or ill, you can then step in and help by caring for the kittens until they’re old enough to find homes.


Always call Haven Humane before moving kittens. During "kitten season" our Kitten Nursery is often full and we may be unable to take them. If you intervene, realize that you are taking responsibility for these little animals.

The guide below will help you determine what steps to take if you’ve found kittens.
