It may be just the start of November, but a group of kittens is getting out of school early this year! On November 4, the ASPCA hosted a ceremony for a class of felines who recently graduated from our kitten nursery. These kittens—many of whom came in as neonates and were in jeopardy from the moment they were born—have received extensive medical and behavioral rehabilitation and will be available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center.
Similar to traditional human graduation ceremonies, the event included inspiring speeches from staff, a procession of the “graduates” receiving their “diplomas,” and opportunities for kitten pics galore.
Nursery residents receive around-the-clock, life-saving care from specially-trained ASPCA staff and volunteers until they are old enough to be microchipped, vaccinated and spayed/neutered. At eight weeks of age, they are ready to be made available for adoption.

Meet sweet pups Caitlyn and Dermott! These best buddies, who would like to be adopted together, came to the ASPCA as part of a cruelty investigation. They’ve come a long way since their rescue and now they’re looking for a patient and caring forever family.
This playful pair is shy at first and may need a little extra space as they warm up to their new home—but with time and a lot of love, there’s nothing these two would love more than to curl up on the couch by your side! These two play well with other dogs and could even make a few canine buddies or become great friends to your resident dog.
Although Dermott is blind, we think that makes him even more special! He has adjusted very well to his condition, especially with the help of pal Caitlyn, and our Adoptions team is available to walk you through the best ways to manage his needs. We know adopting pets with special needs can be a financial commitment and time investment, but these loving pups will bring so much joy in return. Adopt Caitlyn and Dermott today!
