When a pregnant cat accidentally walked into a humane cat trap, she never expected to give birth to her two premature kittens inside. Thankfully, animal control officers found the mama cat and her babies and quickly rushed them to Cara’s House, an open intake shelter in Louisiana.
The shelter named the mama cat Gamora, and she was understandably afraid and protective of her tiny kittens. To help them bond in a calm and quiet environment, the shelter found a loving foster home to take care of them. The kittens, Rocket and Nebula, are thriving under the care of their loving foster family.
Unfortunately, shelters across the country are experiencing an influx of pregnant cats and kittens during kitten season, and many are struggling to find adopters for these homeless pets. Many shelters in southern states are overcrowded and may be forced to euthanize pets at risk of overcrowding.

To address this issue, GreaterGood, in partnership with Greater Good Charities, funds a Flight to Freedom every month. These flights transport dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters to shelters with open kennels, providing them with a second chance at life. The next flight, taking off on May 15th from Louisiana, will rescue mama dogs and cats and their babies, including Gamora and her 8-week-old kittens.
With your donations, we can help give homeless pets the care they need and the chance to find loving forever homes.
