Consider a gift for a kitten today!
Each year "kitten season" showers us with litters of kittens and their desperate mothers who come in need of shelter, medical care, and eventually loving homes. This year alone, we have already adopted out more than 350 kittens in under 225 days, and all of them went home spayed or neutered.
Between now and September 15, we are asking for donations to help improve and complement the care we give to kittens, some of whom need to be bottle fed upon arrival at the East Bay SPCA. Please see a list of needed items below.

ARMANI the foster kitten:
Track Armani's progress! Armani was brought to the East Bay SPCA after being found alone, cold, and afraid in an Oakland front yard. East Bay SPCA Foster Supervisor Joseph Romero was able to find a foster family willing to bottle feed Armani, and he is growing up fast!
Eyes closed, ears flat Armani was totally helpless when he arrived at the East Bay SPCA. During this period,
a foster parent took in Armani, and exponentially increased his chances of survival by taking on the labor-intensive
task of bottle feeding him every 2 hours for a few weeks!
Armani in his next phase of development (pictured above) has grown strong! At this stage, his sense of smell
has developed, his sight if fully mature, and he can run, avoid obstacles, stalk and pounce and eat from a bowl!
Armani is now 6-7 weeks old, and his object play has increased, most of his learning is by observation, and his playtime includes scooping, tossing, pawing, mouthing and holding.
Armani is now between 8 and 9 weeks old and is a strapping two pounds! At two pounds and 8 weeks of age, Armani can get neutered which means that he will be a few days away from entering our Adoption Program! Armani will receive his neuter surgery, and a microchip at our Spay/Neuter Surgery Center. He has also received all of his age-appropriate vaccinations so he can be ready to join his new home!
Armani received his neuter surgery at 9 weeks old and a couple days later entered our Adoption Program. It wasn't long before he was scooped up and he now lives with his kitty bff...Scout! Armani and Scout spend their days wrestling, playing, eating, napping and of course, purring.
