Local shelters and rescue groups offer free baby kittens to anyone who wants to adopt a pet. Some shelters publicize kittens for adoption on classified ads such as Adopt-A-Pet.com and Kittensforadoption.com. Rescue groups also post information about kittens that are ready for adoption or are in need of foster homes.
Many rescue groups operate an independent website where interested individuals can find out how to rescue a kitten. The North Shore Animal League America is a nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing abandoned, lost and abused animals in the United States. The NSALA has its headquarters in New York City and serves the greater metropolitan area, but the organization holds mobile adoption events across America. The NSALA also offers a PetLand store discount under its cat adoption program.
Each state has a Humane Society where animals, including dogs, cats, kittens and even farm animals, are available for adoption. Most of the animals are already spayed or neutered and have been treated for certain diseases. Like most rescue groups and shelters, the Humane Society charges a minimal adoption fee that covers the spaying or neutering service. Because rescue groups and the Humane Society are dedicated to taking care of the animals, adoption fees may be slightly higher than local shelters charge.
