Located on Salt Spring Island, Salt Spring Cat provides care for orphaned kittens found on Salt Spring and nearby Gulf Islands. We are grateful for the generous support of volunteers, community members, local veterinarians and local pet stores. Working in partnership with other rescue agencies, we take those kittens who require more time and equipment than some rescues are able to manage. some rescue parnters include RestQ Santuary on Galiano island and Salt Spring SPCA
Salt Spring Cat has specialized equipment, including an incubator, required to care for these very young kittens. We monitor the kittens via nanny cams and record their progress throughout the day. Round the clock feeding, toileting and maintaining a constant heat source are all essential for the kitten’s survival.
Because these kittens come to us at such a young age, they are in our care for many months. Salt Spring Cat provides a series of vaccinations starting at six weeks of age. Kittens also receive regular veterinary check-ups, deworming and parasite control. Prior to adoption all kittens are spayed or neutered and micro chipped. As kittens approach 12 weeks of age, potential adopters are carefully screened to ensure the best possible placement for each kitten.
