Learning Center

We have assembled a library of materials for adopters, fosters and those who are participating in trap, neuter and release programs. Materials were either authored by one of our Sunshine Rescue Group volunteers or board members or we were granted permission to provide links or reproduce materials as a convenience to our visitors. Please leverage the valuable information contained within the Learning Center before contacting us with issues or questions.

So you're bringing home a new little furry addition. Congratulatons! We wish you and your kitten(s) a lifetime of love and companionship. To get started on the right "paw", we offer the following resources which we think will be helpful to both new kitten adopters and seasoned ones.
