Fostering Kittens

Fostering kittens and cats has never been more important than it is today. In these unprecedented times, animal shelters are greatly relying on the general public to step up and lend a hand as fosters. As we enter kitten season, it is vital that this community is empowered with the tools and information they need in order to help kittens in need.

To help support first-time fosters and adopters, Royal Canin, is teaming up with kitten expert The Kitten Lady - Hannah Shaw to offer Catology, an educational series designed to provide support and resources to people who have welcomed a newly fostered or adopted cat or kitten into their home.
