The Bitty Kitty Brigade exists to serve orphaned, neonatal kittens ages 0-5 weeks who are not yet eating on their own. We are a no-kill organization. All kittens are cared for in foster homes and receive high-quality nutrition and appropriate medical care. Kittens are kept in our care until they are 12 weeks old, are spayed or neutered, microchipped, FeLV tested and receive all age-appropriate vaccinations.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are funded exclusively through donations and grants and are entirely volunteer run.
We receive kittens from local impounds, area rescues and rescuers and other members of the community.
The Bitty Kitty Brigade was founded in 2018 by Joan Barrett and Mandy Dwyer.
