This Shelter Is Looking For Volunteers… To Cuddle Kittens


Miami-Dade Animal Services (MDAS) in Florida is looking for volunteers to do what may be the best job ever: cuddle kittens!

This is a foster position to help the influx of abandoned kittens that usually accompanies the spring season. In addition to snuggling, volunteers will be trained to bottle feed the babies, and will be equipped with a care kit that contains heating pads, feeding bottles, and a kitten milk replacer, according to WSVN.

The news story also reports: “MDAS will schedule veterinary visits for the kittens, who will receive booster vaccines and wellness care until they reach adoption age.”

If you’re interested in joining the Kitten Cuddler program, click here for instructions. Not in the area? Contact your local shelter about fostering kittens, there’s a good chance they’ll be needing help. It’s “kitten season” everywhere, after all!

Who wouldn’t want to cuddle this precious little face?
