This presentation discusses protocols and procedures in place for Jacksonville Humane Society's kitten nursery, known as Kitten University, in partnership with First Coast No More Homeless Pets and Duval County Animal Care and Protective Services. Learn how a combination of resources—the nursery, foster homes, volunteers and staff—doubled the save rate of kittens in Jacksonville, FL, in just one year. This presentation will help you to understand the development process for nursery protocols and training materials at Kitten University, avoid common mistakes if your community is considering a kitten nursery and formulate protocols for handling neonatal kittens that minimize the spread of infectious disease and maximize lifesaving capacity.
