SPCA Premieres #bestwithmom Campaign

Baby season is in full swing. It’s the time of year for baby animals of all types, including kittens, squirrels, and rabbits.

Due to the current health crisis, the SPCA Serving Erie County has been forced to temporarily change its admission policies when it comes to these animals. In an effort to educate community members on what’s best for these young animals during this COVID-19 Response phase, the SPCA has premiered the #bestwithmom campaign.

Wondering what to do with that baby bunny or squirrel you found in the yard? Did your cat have kittens, or did you find an unowned mom cat and kittens outdoors? The SPCA is only able to admit injured or ill animals in emergency situations at this time, but the good news is the animal you see may not need our intervention at all. Find the appropriate image below to learn what to do next in your specific situation:

Please read this wonderful resource from Multnomah County Animal Services to help determine if the kittens you’ve found are in need of your help.
