Campaign Helping Homeless Kittens

(NBC) Homeless kittens are flooding animal shelters across the nation and fostering is desperately needed.

The A-S-P-C-A is working to recruit temporary foster caregivers just for kittens.

It's called the "Meow For Now" campaign.

The campaign addresses the need to save vulnerable kittens until they are old enough to be adopted at shelters.

Many shelters experience large intakes of cats and kittens during the spring and summer months, also known as kitten season.

The A-S-P-C-A says fostering is essential to protect at risk kitten populations and ease the strain on overcrowded shelters.
