Jim Lester Kitten Nursery & Foster Center
Back in 2009, San Diego Humane Society opened the country’s first-ever around-the-clock kitten nursery to meet the resource-intensive needs of kittens under the age of eight weeks. Today, the Jim Lester Kitten Nursery & Foster Center develops and shares best practices for kitten care with shelters across the country. In addition to providing critical care for kittens up to seven months old, the Jim Lester Nursery & Foster Center engages hundreds of trained foster volunteers to provide 24-hour care in their own homes and offers a daycare space for fosters who need help caring for kittens during the day. The facility is now part of a broader Kitten Program that also includes nurseries at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido and Oceanside campuses. Programs like this are few and far between, and it’s one of the key components to San Diego Humane Society’s commitment to Stay at Zero euthanasia of healthy and treatable shelter animals in San Diego County.
