What Should I do If I Find Stray Kittens In Texas?

Remain calm when you find stray kittens in Texas. If the animal(s) is(are) not seriously hurt, take them to the nearest vet clinic or animal control agency. However, act with caution. The animals may not be stray.

Help resources like AlleyCat.org states when you find a litter of kittens mewing under a bush, you can get an impulse to do anything to help the small cats. They continue: you should simply leave them be, “allowing kittens and moms who are already thriving outdoors to stay right where they are” as separating them from their mom could be detrimental to their health.

Seek Expert Advice

Before approaching the animals its always best to seek expert advice. If you are sure the kitten(s) are abandoned or of need of medical help Montgomery County Animal Services are a shelter found at 8535 Hwy 242, Conroe, Texas 77385. You can phone them at 936-442-7738.

Please note since August 16th 2021, intakes of stray kittens in Texas were suspended because of a shortage of staff due to spread of COVID-19 and mitigation of Distemper in animals. It is best to email them for help if you have a stray animal

Email: Shelter.Counter@mctx.org

From October 2021 services are open again. The animal are usually vaccinated before intake intake which helps protect the animal(s) from becoming ill. The shelter is willing to assist with any supplies needed such as a kennel, food, flea prevention, and other pests.
