Unfortunately, COVID-19 has closed the shelter, putting most of their cats and dogs in temporary foster homes. So, they needed to get these kittens into homes quickly.

They reportedly cleaned them and examined them for injuries or illnesses. They then contacted an emergency foster and secured supplies.
