MIAMI, Fla. (WFLA) – The Miami-Dade County Animal Services is in need of Kitten Cuddlers to help feed and care for tiny, orphaned newborn kittens.

A spring influx of kittens has increased the critical need for people who can help provide round-the-clock care to help keep them alive and prepare them to be adopted.

“Abandoned newborn kittens are an unfortunate right of spring and we need the help of the community,” said MDAS director Alex Muñoz. “Engaging and empowering the community to play an active role is a key component of our lifesaving efforts.”

Training sessions will take place the second and fourth Sundays of each month, beginning in April. Kitten Cuddlers will receive all the necessary training, care supplies and information needed to help nurture the precious little animal’s life. The training will be held from Noon – 1.p.m.
