This has led to kitten deaths and a huge increase in our vet bill. We cannot take any more cats or kittens until we adopt, place with rescue, or find fosters. We are looking for a humane solution to the county’s cat overpopulation problem, but we need help. Stray Hearts is a very small rescue with only a handful of dedicated members.
