AWLA offers apprenticeships to shelter and rescue staff from all over the country to equip them with knowledge and skills to establish their own kitten nursery.

Here’s how:

AWLA Comes to You!

Our National Kitten College Program Administrator will spend an entire day at your facility covering the following topics:

  • Taking the fear out of caring for bottle babies
  • Utilizing existing resources to address the needs of kittens
  • Recruiting and training fosters
  • Building an engaged community

The only cost of this service is the travel expenses incurred by AWLA.

You Come to AWLA!

Spend a full day at AWLA with our National Kitten College Program Administrator, who will cover the topics previously listed PLUS you will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet with AWLA’s Kitten College Coordinator, Vanessa Parks
  • Learn AWLA’s kitten protocols with our vet team
  • Discuss fundraising and marketing tips with our Development team
  • Learn how the program addresses community needs and questions with AWLA President & CEO Sam Wolbert
