Charlotte’s Animal Shelter Just Built A State-Of-The-Art Kitten Room – Now They Need Volunteers


CMPD Animal Care and Control has just built the cutest new addition to their shelter – a kitten room.

Last year, the organization found themselves becoming the surrogate mothers to hundreds of abandoned kittens, and that number is growing every month.

The kittens who are too young to take care of themselves will be bottle fed by volunteers every few hours in the new nursery:

The new kitten room at Charlotte’s Animal Care and Control will be funded entirely by grant money to provide this critical care for the infant cats. The room will come fully stocked with incubators for prematurely born kittens, bottle warmers, cribs, and plenty of blankets.

Their biggest need now is volunteers – they need people who might be willing to donate a small amount of time to feed the little kittens on continuing shifts.

The new nursery is now planning on hosting an open house on April 18 at 1 p.m. at 8315 Byrum Drive. If you’d like to volunteer, you can message Trisha Lopez at
